A Devotional


Your Courts
Words and Photo by Connie Wisman

I woke up this morning with such yearning
in my heart to walk in the courts of the Lord.
I often feel like I am truly there as I see the
life-filled paths of flowers, creatures, and living
waters to which He has led me recently.
Be encouraged:

How lovely is your dwelling place,
O Lord Almighty!
My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the Lord.
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the living God.
Ps. 84:1-2

Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
they are ever praising you.
Ps. 84-4

Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere.
Ps. 84-10

How refreshing.. I think we all look for the opportunity to "walk" in His presence when we truly feel that presence.

We sing a song ... think it is called "Better is one Day" or something ... nice thoughts.

I read this the day my Dad left and it made me cry like a baby. I was struggling with his rejection of Christ and feeling angry with God about it. Sheltered, protected and desired was not how I was feeling - neither was the yearning of His Courts.

Thank God for His mercy.
