Psalm 84: 1-2 & 10
1. How lovely is Your tabernacle,
O Lord of hosts!
2. My soul longs, yes, even faints
for the courts of the Lord;
My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.
10. For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
So many days I catch myself starting out my day with the dreaded “to do list”. Every chore must be completed, wholly and completely or else I feel like a failure. This is not due to anyone other than myself. And maybe the devil, with all his whispering in my ear and tugging on my sleeve.
When I begin to feel the funk setting in, I realize….yep, again. I need to have quiet time. My day was off and running because I slept through my alarm, I might wake the dogs before sunrise, the kids are needy this morning, hubby needs more one on one…..all reasons, but none of them so pressing that I couldn’t take some time to refresh my soul in the presence of my King.
“Better is one day in your courts, Better is one day in your house, Better is one day in your courts, Than thousands elsewhere”…..Kutless
I reach for Him, He draws me closer.
I hear His sweet voice, It calms my soul.
I feel His love, It makes the day easier.
I hear His direction, I am more focused.
I know these things, in my head and even in my heart….yet…..my human side thinks I can handle it all.by.myself.
So again, tomorrow….I will think more on Psalm 84.
Better is one day, than a thousand elsewhere.
I’m taking the time tomorrow.
I’m getting up with the alarm.
I’ll set the coffee pot and drink my cup with the sunrise.
I will satisfy my heart, in His presence.
Many blessings to you,
