For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere.
A day in the mountains, overwhelmed by the beauty of my Father’s creation.
A day on the lake, alone with my worship music and my Bible. No phone, no internet.
A day when the sun is shining bright. Even the shadows of dusk are a thumbprint of His light.
A day on the beach where the depth of the ocean meets the endless sky.
A day when I can’t seem to even get out of bed. I realize that I need God as I struggle with the uncertainties of everyday life. His love covers me like a blanket, keeping me warm and secure. He soothes me with his promises and comforts me with his Spirit, encouraging me so I can face the day with confidence He lovingly planted.
One day of pure intimacy with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Love songs are exchanged between my heart and the heavens. Worship and praise begins to flow to the One who desires to be this intimate with me. I was created for such intimacy. My existence is because of who He is and that’s all that matters now, in this one day.
Joy begins to erupt from my heart as my Father showers me in His love. I blush. Nothing else happening in my imperfect world matters.
Joy is a gift. It’s a settled peace in knowing who Jesus is to me.
Do you have one day to spend with Him? One day of intimacy with Him is better than a thousand elsewhere! He is waiting.
Radiant with Joy,
