It is always a wonder for us when we go visit a friend’s home for the first time.  We stand in awe of the layout, the decoration and the use of the things and colors of the place.  Often, we see things that are pleasing to our eyes, and we make notes of little changes we can make.

Well, the earth is the Lord’s and everything in it.  When we stop and consider the implications of living in a place that our God designed and placed…it is staggering.He made this place for us.  He took great care of placing order in the world and from microbes to galaxies, he signed his works. He loves us, and has invited us to be His children. As his children, we are also His heirs. We can approach the Creator and Owner with the least and greatest of our needs; with no penalty and complete assurance that we are welcome.

All God asks in return–is that we trust him and allow him to lead on this amazing journey. He never promised it would be easy, but, he did say it would be full and meaningful.  He also promised we would never face it alone.  We are blessed beyond measure; mainly, because we are His and are promised eternal life with Him.  But, for now, we can enter His house with joy and wonder knowing as His own; one day it will be ours!

God Bless You

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it;
for he founded it on the seas
    and established it on the waters.

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?
    Who may stand in his holy place?
The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,
    who does not trust in an idol
    or swear by a false god.[a]

They will receive blessing from the Lord
    and vindication from God their Savior.
Such is the generation of those who seek him,
    who seek your face, God of Jacob.[b][c]

Lift up your heads, you gates;
    be lifted up, you ancient doors,
    that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
    The Lord strong and mighty,
    the Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, you gates;
    lift them up, you ancient doors,
    that the King of glory may come in.
10 Who is he, this King of glory?
    The Lord Almighty—
    he is the King of glory.
