‘There is none else’

Here’s a poem that highlights how we can never be outside of the powerful, universal presence of God.

God, the great I AM –
the only presence.
I AM. Here.
I AM. There.
I AM. Everywhere.
Because
I AM – ALL.

I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me.
Isaiah 45:5

God is everywhere, and nothing apart from Him is present or has power.
Mary Baker Eddy, “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,” p. 473

Poem originally published in the Sept. 1, 2014, issue of the Christian Science Sentinel.
