One thing

I’m asking God for one thing, only one thing: To live with him in his house my whole life long. I’ll contemplate his beauty; I’ll study at his feet. That’s the only quiet, secure place in a noisy world, The perfect getaway, far from the buzz of traffic. Psalm 27:4-5

In this beautiful setting of glorious light and intimate care, I find all my wants and wishes evaporate leaving only one request. To stay with him, where all is quiet and secure, and learn. The traffic buzz is gone – all I hear is him.

I wish all this could happen now but the request can. It’s part of being still through silence, cultivating serenity through solitude…through intimacy with my Lord. Yes, this can happen now.

Lord, why do I allow the things of this world to choke out our intimacy together. I must choose to be still and silent for you to do your beautiful work.
