Being on my patio in the evenings and getting to watch my favorite Artist create the most glorious sunset paintings is definitely one of my favorite places to be. Watching as He pulls out colors my eyes have never even seen before is mind boggling to me. It definitely makes this girl ponder Him.
As much as I enjoy these happy places, they don’t even compare to what being Him will be like.
“How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of Heaven’s Armies. I long, yes, I faint with longing to enter the courts of the Lord. With my whole being, body and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living God...A single day in your courts is better than a thousand anywhere else!”
Psalm 84:1-2, 10a NLT
With each passing day and the older I get, I long to go home. Truly home. My hearts gets homesick some days...especially when I miss loved ones. Better than even being reunited with loved ones, is the thought of being fully in the presence of my Lord.
One day, I can just imagine sitting with my God and Him pulling out all those colors that He uses to paint with and watching Him create...in person.
Where is your favorite place to ponder Him? Share with me in the comments.
May you long for home.
Until next time,
