1 How lovely is your dwelling place,
2 My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the living God.
10 Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
12 Lord Almighty,
blessed is the one who trusts in you.
One of my favorite quotes of all time is from CS Lewis and is found in his book Mere Christianity: “If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.”
May today you find solace in the fact that we were made for another place. Allow yourself to long for the presences of God, to be swept away by his majesty. And unlike earthy houses, this home is already being prepared for you. It will be ready with the sweet presence of our God and courts built for our praises.
