Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favour and honour;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose way of life is blameless.
blessed is the one who trusts in you.
I’m struggling to write notes for these verses because they say it far better than I can.
What can match with the wonder and joy of being with God.
We’re sometimes lured away, but what can anyone or anything else offer us in comparison to him?
Read those verses again and prayerfully let them soak in…
