“God, it seems you’ve been our home forever; long before the mountains were born, long before you brought earth itself to birth, from ‘once upon a time’ to ‘kingdom come’ – you are God.” Psalm 90.1
I am sure you have had the experience; a smell or a sound catches you and suddenly you are three years old again. A normal experience hits you at the right moment and you are reliving your first date. The sight of something absolutely ordinary triggers a virtual reality of years ago. I often wonder at the source and the reason, however this wonder does not change the impact of the immediate.
Yesterday I relived much of my past. The politics seemed to be race laps already complete with meetings redundant to ones past and conversations looping through old territory. Most of day appeared as an old movie. Reflecting on the events it is hard to distinguish between yesterday and events years old. I am not sure what this means, it just is but with a difference.
The difference I find is my thirst to worship God. In the past, I did not have a sense of overwhelming thirst for this experience; I do not know why, perhaps it is something I did not know could be. I find myself thirsty to express how important God is to me, how much I long to walk with him, and how awesome he is. He is part of my life and I cannot remember ever being without. He has always been with me though there were long periods of time I did not know this. I looked for Him in other forms and when he was not there, I quit searching.
God is your home. You may forget this at times, you may not fully realize what it means, but he is and will always be your home. God waits and will continue to wait for as long as it takes you to turn towards him. He loves you without reservation and without conditions.
Making God home is my best decision, yours too.
