The following is from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
October 19 – Come to Me with your defenses down, ready to be blessed and filled with My Presence. Relax, and feel the relief of being totally open and authentic… One of the worst consequences of the Fall is the elaborate barriers people erect between themselves and others. Sometimes, church is the last place where people feel free to be themselves. The best antidote to this artificial atmosphere is practicing My Presence at church. Let your primary focus be communing with Me, worshiping Me, glorifying Me. Then you will be able to smile at others with My joy and love them with My love.
