One thing I have asked from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life; to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple- Psalm 27:4
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living- Psalm 27:13
For over a week now, Psalm 27:3 has been playing on repeat in my mind and heart. That has been my greatest desire- to see Him.
Not at some time in the future– but NOW- to be aware of His presence and to see how He is at work all the time, all around me.
It might sound a little strange, but I think a lot about heaven and what it will be like. I can’t even wrap my mind around it, but I know the joy I experience when I spend time in His presence… and to experience joy like that for eternity- well, that’s going to be nothing short of AMAZING!!
But you know what else I’ve been thinking about? How desperately I want EVERYONE I know to experience that same joy.
So I need to keep an ear out for His voice,
and an eye out for whomever He puts in my path,
and I’ve gotta be prayed up when I see them-
so He will tell me what to say.
But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect- 1 Peter 3:15
