"FAN THE FLAME" FRIDAY - Omnipresent

Welcome to "Fan the Flame" Friday.

This is a weekly post that will be "short and sweet" (kinda like me...)

Just a word and a phrase, a sentence or a question...just a little something to "fan the flame" of your creativity!

Today's word: omnipresent

What does the word omnipresent mean?

Does the concept that God is omnipresent - always with you, all the time - give you comfort or make you feel unsettled? (Or are you like me, a little of both?!)

What are some of the ways that you feel the reality of God's omnipresent Spirit?

Let me know what you think!!

"This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you…For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline." (2 Timothy 1:6-7)

  1. Knowing that He is always with me, gives me sweet peace, and much comfort.

  2. I'm comforted by God's ominipresence and the knowledge that He is with me in every situation. It's the kind of security blanket that this 'fraidy cat needs. Lately though, I'm even more comforted by the thought that this same God who is with me is with my husband on the road and the two girls in their various cities. That knowledge is, as the Word says, "too wonderful for me".

  3. Always present, always there is how I would define omnipresent. I am so glad God is omnipresent; that comforts me knowing he is always here with me, always there with my loved ones, etc. Of course he is always there when I'm sinning too, but that's a good thing because it should help me to remember twice before I go down the wrong path.

    I hope you have a great day Sharon! Enjoy this beautiful weather!


  4. I have always been in awe by this word. To think that He is always there is such a comfort in the storms. Blessings, Debbie

  5. He's there even when we don't know he's there. sandie

  6. Hi Sharon,

    I am comforted by the fact that he is always with me.

    Hope you have a blessed weekend.

  7. Knowing He's there me courage and strength.

  8. The thought is a little mind boggling, but I know it's true. I'm so glad it's true.


"So [I] have been greatly encouraged in the midst of [my] troubles and suffering, dear brothers and sisters, because you have remained strong in your faith. It gives [me] new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord. How [I] thank God for you!" (1 Thessalonians 3:7-9)
