Step into the Presence of Jesus


Have you ever felt that burning desire to be in the presence of Jesus? You’re not alone! So many of us crave that intimate connection with our Savior, but let’s be real: it’s not always easy to achieve. But don’t worry because I’m thrilled to share some incredible insights that will help you get closer to Jesus and step into His presence!

Over fifty years ago, when I first started my daily prayer routine, it was pretty simple – read the Bible and say some prayers. However, as time went on, I realized that some barriers prevented me from truly experiencing the presence of Jesus. So, I made it my mission to remove those obstacles and develop daily disciplines that included worship, deep Bible study, heartfelt prayer, and patiently waiting on Jesus.

Let me tell you, it wasn’t easy. Rushing in and out of prayer wasn’t going to cut it. But I learned that if I took the time and put some effort into it, I could genuinely connect with Jesus. And part of that effort involved obeying His will in my life, no matter the cost. But let me tell you, every act of obedience was worth it because it helped me grow spiritually and develop a close relationship with Jesus that I cherish to this day.

So, if you’re looking to enter the presence of Jesus, know that it takes some time and effort. But trust me, it’s so worth it! Develop those consistent daily disciplines, obey His will in your life, and patiently wait on Him. Your relationship with Him will grow, and you’ll experience the peace and joy of being in His presence

Mix It Up

Have you been searching for the perfect prayer routine? Early in my Christian walk, I did! I tried different prayer times for years to see what worked best. But here’s the thing: what works for me might not be the right fit for you. So, my advice? Dive in and pursue Jesus with all your heart! After all, we’re all unique, and our paths to encountering His presence will be different. You never know where the Holy Spirit might lead you.


The first step to developing a close relationship is to identify your goal. For me, it was inspired by Exodus 33:11, “The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend.” How incredible is that! So, I decided to pursue a meaningful and intimate friendship with Jesus. And let me tell you, the experience has been beyond my wildest dreams! Every day, I am blessed with a deep connection that is truly out of this world. I encourage you to take that first step towards pursuing Jesus, and see where it takes you!


But here’s the catch: true friendship requires transparency. So, during my prayer time, I started sharing everything with Jesus: my joys, sorrows, hopes, and fears. Heart to heart. Spirit to spirit. And can you guess what happened next? Jesus started opening up to me, too! He shared His grief and joys with me, just like He’ll do with you. So, don’t hold back; be vulnerable by sharing your heart with Jesus, and you’ll be surprised where it takes you!

Hungry for Relationship

One of the most beautiful spiritual principles Jesus taught me is to keep my heart open to His presence and not be held back by intellectual concepts. He explained that sometimes our minds can get in the way of truly experiencing His love and that He is so much more than just an idea to be understood. When we connect with Jesus on a heart level, the relationship that blooms is exceptional and life-changing.

I remember the moment when this truth clicked for me – I let go of my past religious experiences and fully embraced the love Jesus has for me. As I worshipped Him, I felt my heart overflowing with love, and it was as if He had drawn even closer to me. And do you know what He said to me? He said that He wants even more of me! Just as I long to be in His presence, He desires a deep, meaningful relationship with every one of us.

It’s incredible to think about the depth of love and connection that Jesus offers. So, take a moment to reflect on this and open your heart to His presence today.

Love Note for You

I’m so thrilled to share some amazing info with you! Jesus reached out to me and wanted to make sure the following message got to you. It’s a heartwarming love note straight from Him, just for you. Here it is:

“My Beloved, everything the world offers falls short of satisfying you, leaving you unfulfilled and longing for more. Therefore, I urge you to pursue the only thing that will fulfill your heart – enter into the open door of My presence, where all is well. Nothing else can provide the satisfaction and fulfillment that you seek.

I long for you just as you long for Me. I desire to walk and talk with you, to see the delight on your face when you recognize that My presence is before you. I yearn for intimate conversations where we share our hearts face-to-face, with no barriers or fear, but only love that comes from a mutual desire to be transparent with each other. Once you experience My presence, you will never want to let Me go.

Come, I’m waiting for YOU with open arms.”


“In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.” Psalm 16:11
