Biblical Reflection

The ONLY house I want to dwell in.

When I was young, I felt as if I belonged nowhere. I did not fit into a society that demanded so many unethical things, and, I still don’t. However, the thing I wanted most was to move the farthest away from the village in which I grew up and so, I started saving up to purchase a house. But then medical problems arose and it was one thing after the other and before I knew it, the dream of acquiring a house went down the drain.

However, God intervened and led me to John 14:2 in which Jesus promises…

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Lately, the verse is once again on my heart. Sabbath worship is just a taste in this life of the joys and delight in God’s house. I do have a place to live and a bed to rest my head on when the night falls, so I am utmost grateful that God has taken my mind away from temporal things.

And this is my reply to John 14:2:

One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.

Psalms 27:4

Because…

Lord, I love the house where you live,
    the place where your glory dwells.

Psalm 26:8

May our hearts be continually set on desiring to be with the Lord.

If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts? Or what do you use if you need to have your vision corrected?

I actually wear glasses while watching TV. I’ve never thought about getting contacts because I think it’ll make my eyes miserable.

Your home is on fire. Grab five items (assume all people and animals are safe). What did you grab?

Let’s see… my Bible, laptop (because it contains important work), cell phone, my glasses, and my handbag which contains important things like my wallet, identification card etc.
