Today's Favorite Verse: D&C 38:8

Today's Favorite Verse: Doctrine & Covenants 38:8
"But behold, verily, verily, I say unto you that mine eyes are upon you. I am in your midst and ye cannot see me;"

This verse made me wonder if the Lord has ever been in my midst yet I couldn't see him. I reflected on the times I have experienced the feeling that someone is watching me and no one is there. Really most of the times that just feels creepy. I have felt enveloped in love and the spirit really strong as I've reflected on various things. I know the feeling of the Holy Ghost being near, is that the same as feeling the Lord looking at you? As I sat here pondering I realized I have never felt like someone was watching me while I have sat in the celestial room in the temple. Of all places I would think I would feel the presence of a spirit there. I have also been in the temple and knew the Lord was there at that very moment. If I could have got up and walked the halls I knew I would have found the very room he was in. Yet he wasn't in the room I was in. I think he can look at us and we just don't feel it. Why? Because when we are alone we truly are ourselves. He knows us for who we really are.
