Practice of the Presence of God
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In communion with Rome, a lay brother among the Carmelites, for several years a soldier, in an irreligious age, amid a sceptical people, yet in him the practice of the presence of GOD was as much a reality as the “watch” of the early Friends, and the “holy seed” in him and others was the “stock” (Isa. vi. 13) from which grew the household and evangelistic piety of the eighteenth century, of Epworth and of Moorfields.
Every time I read this book I am challenged, humbled, and motivated. It is awe-inspiring to learn how a cook at a monastery (Brother Lawrence) learned to live in such close communion with God. It is beautiful the way it is so plainly yet is so profound. This simple man learned such utter dependence on Him, and He encourages us to do the same. I can only read a chapter at a time and then spend days reflecting on it. I encourage you to read it, absorb it, and learn know Him more deeply than you ever have before.
This book is invaluable for anyone in pursuit of a life of Holiness.
So rich and so full it will take a lifetime of rereading and meditating upon to extract what God fully has for us in these writings.
