How lovely are Your dwelling places,
O Lord of hosts!
My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the Lord;
My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.
(Psalm 84:1-2, NASB)
For me, heaven is not a mansion,
a harp, or
It is not meeting old friends or
an endless family reunion.
That is not what my heart longs for.
My heart longs for You,
My heart longs for my Savior,
my Wisdom and Holiness,
My heart longs for the Second Adam of all I will be.
My heart longs for the Breath of God,
the Wind of God,
the Life of God
blowing fully, freely, and unceasingly through all I am.
I long for
permeated completely and forever
with God alone.
Come, Lord Jesus!
I long, and
Father, I embrace the brevity of
my life in this world, and
I long to be where
my oneness with You is complete,
constant, and forever.
Hymn: O Living God
