Five Minute Friday: Here

Here I

Hearts are heavy and broken. We long for home. We wait.

We ponder. We cry. We want to see eternity.

But then eternity meets us. Jesus is here, calling us out of hiding.

He says, “Come to me all you who are weary and heavy laden.”

“Remove the mask you hide behind, cast your cares on me, and be hidden with me in God.”

Here. Now. Each moment. Calling out, and seeking us. Healing and making us whole.

Though I long for heaven, His presence is here, with me now, completely, calling and comforting me.

As I wait, as I long, He meets me here making me free.

Let us worship and bow down in His presence.

Carrying the easy and light burden of hope in Him.
