Presence and absence

When troubles crop up, it's comforting to acknowledge that God is present. Such a simple concept heals; it carries power regardless of how modest our understanding of God may be. The statement carries power because it's a divine fact. God is present. When, in humility, we acknowledge that fact, we are blessed.

Because God is good, infinitely powerful and merciful, our acknowledgment goes some distance to dissolve whatever appears unmerciful and evil. People of virtually every religious persuasion have benefited from the acceptance of God's presence.
