Inspired by Psalm 84
O Father, how I love being in Your presence!
When I realize that I am with You,
all I am sings for joy,
You are infinitely above me
in power, and
Yet when I am with You, I sense that
this is where I belong.
I know a freedom,
a rest in You.
This life is not easy, Father.
The needs never end.
There is weariness,
But when I realize that all of life is a journey to You,
Weariness turns to praise.
Darkness shines with Your unfailing goodness.
Sorrow is matched with an inexpressible joy.
Your presence lights my pathway every day.
But what is more,
You Yourself are the heaven toward which I travel.
O Father, absorb my
every thought and
You are my joy,
now and forever!
