you have been our dwelling place
throughout all generations.
FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, when I look into your eyes, I see eternity. One day My gates will open wide, and heaven, your real home, will beckon like a long-lost friend. You'll walk across and finally be home—home at last. But for now? Remember I not only want to be at home in your heart, but I also want you to be at home in Mine. Stay in My presence daily, and you will find a safe dwelling place until you reach your final destination.
A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
There are times, Lord, when I long to go home. You have created me for eternity, placing the desire for heaven in my heart. But in You, Lord, even here in this temporary house called earth, I find a place to hang my heart. You are my dwelling place, my home away from home.
We spend our energies searching for the needs of our hearts, only to realize what we were looking for was at home all along.
