    One of my most favourite praise songs. Better is ONE day.
    So true, so true.

    I’ve experienced the wonder of being in His presence. (I didn’t want to move or say a word, something very unusual for me, as my friends know.) I feel it was merely the tiniest taste of what an eternity with Him will be like. Would that I would always yearn for His presence and not His presents.

      “Yearn for His presence and not His presents” — well said, Stephanie! I know what you mean about the speechlessness, and for me too it’s a most unusual state. It’s a rare and precious gift, but you’re so right, we don’t dare live for the gifts but for the Giver.

    Janet,

    What an important truth to keep in mind!…. Many want to hold onto feelings only — as if they are more important than God Himself.

    We need to realize that many of the cults that exist today started with people exalting their feelings instead of exalting God our Savior for who He is…. Thank you for sharing this.

      So true, Margaret. I think we’re often guilty of accepting feelings as “proof” or fact, when we’re to walk by faith and trust instead of by our senses.

    Margaret, how true! While the feelings can be wonderful–joy, awe and the like–they can’t be our goal. We need to believe in the God of the Bible, even when we don’t “feel” all warm and fuzzy. After all that is the essence of faith. Bless you!
