You are Here~

A gentle breeze blows,

 caressing my cheeks,

 bringing peace and refreshment.

My body, weary from the day, welcomes it's touch.

As my shoulders relax and my muscles mellow into this moment,

I smile.




Thank you, Lord.

It is SO VERY GOOD to be with you here.

To think,

sitting here,

I am in your midst.

YOU are in my midst.

YOU,

the one who created the Heavens and the Earth,

the King of Kings

and Lord or Lords,

the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega,

Wonderful,

Counselor,

Everlasting Father,

 Prince of Peace,

 Messiah,

... ALMIGHTY GOD

are here.

With me. 

In this moment. 

Deity sharing this moment with humanity.

God and man.

You and me.

My mind cannot even begin to comprehend this truth,  and yet my soul cannot deny it.

 I feel you here and my soul reaches out and embraces your presence.

Like an oasis in the desert, my soul has found relief, refreshment, a haven in you.

 I run to you and I am safe,

 hidden in the cleft of your love,

 protected,

nurtured,

.........held.

 Aaaaaahhh.... what peace you bring. 

What strength you provide. 

What comfort you give. 

What rest!

What relaxation!

What refreshment.

You. are. life.

How my heart longs for the day when there will be no more separation between Heaven and Earth, for even though you are here, my greatest desire is to see you,

face to face. 

To feel your hand in mine. 

To kneel at your feet. 

To behold you in all your majesty and glory. 


But until then,


 I will rejoice in right now.


For even here, YOU ARE~


We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.  1 Corinthians 13:12-13, The Message
