Nothing on Earth

Today, January 14, 2014

 “Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:23-26

Lately, creation’s gray canopy closes me in and leaves me with earthbound thoughts. But God invites me to think beyond the clouds to heaven. From there, he sends His presence and  “holds” me, gives me “counsel,” and soon will “receive” me into His glorious presence. His strength enlivens me for each day. He is my “portion”—my life and joy (“The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want”).

My daily reality, then, is both on earth and in heaven where Father and Son coordinate my day and future!
