Gazebo Visiting

Sitting in the gazebo, talking with the Lord, I asked Him to visit with me, like my family and friends do. I remember, as a young Christian mom, wishing I could share some chocolate chip cookies with Jesus and we could visit. I had so much to learn; so many questions to ask.

Now, after all these years, I’m still longing for a visit with Him.

I know, from God’s answers through the years:

I’m to seek Him,

Be still and know that He is God,

Have a grateful heart,

Praise His Holy Name, and

Be aware of being welcomed into His presence, always and anytime.

As I sat in the gazebo, this is what my Heavenly Father taught me:

Being welcomed into His presence, basking in His encompassing love, is His gift to all of us because we are His and He delights in us. It is while we are in His Holy presence that we become “ready to receive” (those are the words I heard in my spirit, “ready to receive”) In His presence, we are open to receiving our Father’s instruction, His answers to our prayers, His comfort and His blessings.

Now I know, I will seek to stay in my Father’s presence, delightfully basking in His love, and praying that He will continue to help me to be ready to receive.
