I was glad

I was glad when they said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the Lord!”
Our feet are standing
    within your gates, O Jerusalem. (Psalm 122:2-3 CEB)

This is the place in which God’s people gather to worship.
This is sacred ground.

Peace be within these walls,
and security within your towers.” (Psalm 122: 7 CEB)
We find peace and comfort and challenge within these walls. 

Find that peace and comfort today but be challenged to be God’s emissaries to the world when you leave.
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek [God’s] good. (Psalm 122:9 CEB)

I was glad when they said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the Lord!” (Psalm 122:1 CEB)

As we enter what we hope is the final phase of the pandemic, Tim is beginning a journey of rediscovering himself and discerning next steps. He writes from his home in Albany, Oregon and wherever the Spirit lures him.
