Lord, I’m stopping to envision the beauty of heaven, its peace and its safety. With all the upheaval and threatening situations in this world, just the thought of your courts brings me serenity. The hope of eternity helps me look past this world to see You welcoming me home. I am still to experience your nearness in your name, Jesus, and your authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts! My soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God.”
