Right now, my heart longs to feel His presence, to hear His voice, and to simply dwell with Him.
I want to know His voice in a way I’ve never known before.
I have never had this much alone time. Typically, my introverted self loves and needs alone time, but this is alone on another level.
Today my goal is to open up my heart and let the Light in. To basque in His sunshine that my whole being craves. To listen to His whispers. To see Him who is invisible.
“For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven.”
He loves me.
He chose me.
Even in my mess, His love fights for me.
He died to bring me peace.
He made me, made all of my little bones, and holds everything together.
I love the words of verse 13, “[He] transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son.” Isn’t that beautiful?! We are a part of His kingdom where He redeems us and calls us by name. He is our Hero, the kind of hero you can’t help but fall in love with.
He is the one who has sat by me on the couch day after day. He is the one who has felt both my physical pain and my emotional pain. He is the one who hums songs to my heart of His goodness and faithfulness. He is the one who puts a smile on my face. He is the one who clothes me with strength to face another day.
He is the one I choose to dwell with today.
Here’s the song in my head today:
Invade by Watermark
Come, come in
Invade all You see of us
Any man, who’d walk Your road is welcomed here
And You’re the only one
Jesus, come and walk the halls of this house
Tread this place and turn it inside out
With Your mercy…
Jesus, teach us the prayers that open these doors
Until Your light floods in and illuminates these floors
And let Your truth be on our steps and in these rooms
Reach, reach in
With the hand that heals all our suffering
Conquer all that is not of You
Bring Your spirit throught
As we fill these walls with Your praise
I call for angels
I call for mercy
I call for freedom
In the name of Jesus
In the name of Jesus
