"You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence." Psalm 16:11
A few years back, my husband and I, along with some family members, were going away over Spring holiday. First morning while everyone was busy and bustling around, I set out for a short walk.
Light snow was flurrying, and even against a grey sky it was beautiful. Not too far away was a church. I eased into a small back pew.
Communion was being celebrated during the service. As I made my way up front, I looked out across the people. So many different faces, so many different reasons that might have brought them there. No doubt many had come to simply worship our Lord. Others, though, perhaps out of desperation, or with a faint hope. I thought, so many different cries of the heart, yet God hears them all.
I have since been able to return to this peaceful place a time or two. It has always been a safe, sheltering place to pray. It is wonderful to have the opportunity to go to a church or place of worship to seek God and meet with Him. However, we can do that anytime, anywhere.
No matter what is on our minds or our hearts, no matter what our needs or desires are, Jesus is always available to us. Anytime, anywhere, He is waiting to listen and speak with us.
That is good news.
