Haven’t we all wished to rid ourselves of this earthly existence and experience a little bit of heaven here on earth? Don’t we long to walk away from the mundane and into the sublime? Oh, yes. Oh, yes we do. The only place I’ve found that is in the presence of Jesus through prayer and/or reading His word. There is no greater sense of peace, fulfillment and delight. It comes only in closeness with my Savior. The more I seek Him, the deeper He takes me into who He is and how He loves me. In those times of closeness all my fears fade. All my hurts heal. All my anxieties quell. All my spirit is renewed. David tells us in Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourselves in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Times with Jesus are a little bit of heaven here on earth.
A Little Bit of Heaven
Jesus came to earth and was crucified.
His life for our sin was the price he paid.
The Light of the Spirit left in His stead:
A little bit of heaven for our lives.
Acceptance of Christ; the Spirit comes in.
We’re then to share this gift we’ve taken
A little bit of heaven in souls to awaken
To light the way and to shine within.
The Spirit’s the way, His love shines through.
I see when you smile, I surmise,
A little bit of heaven in your eyes.
The Spirit in me sees the Spirit in you.
Bring your little bit of heaven in any case.
A little bit of heaven here on earth,
A little bit of heaven; the soul’s true worth.
We’ll share a little bit of heaven in this place.
My loving heavenly Father, I delight in your presence. I delight in the holiness and wisdom in your Word. I delight in your plan for my life. I look to you for guidance. I look to you for strength. I look to you for peace. I look to you for provision. I look to you for love. I look to you for the desires of my heart. You are faithful. I am fulfilled. I thank you in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will.
