The reading for today is Psalm 27:4 ESV.
“One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire[a] in his temple.”
I want to echo David’s wish to be near God, not just now, but for all my days. As we approach the birth of Jesus, let us hold this hope in our hearts that we will live forever in His presence. His death and resurrection made this possible for us. Even though we fall short of living as faithful Christians, Jesus’ grace and mercy are abundantly and freely given. Thank God. We too can rest assured that we will “dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.”
You know the number of stars in the sky and the drops that fill the mighty ocean. Thank you for your creation and the beauty that fills the world.
