Being in God’s presence isn’t complicated

Have you ever sat down to spend time with God and found yourself struggling because you don't feel "spiritual" enough? Your mind is cluttered. The external noises around you are distracting. You make every effort to sound sincere in your prayers, yet your feelings don't line up. And soon, your thoughts drift to wondering how you will ever be able to sense His presence.
