Any place becomes the Promised Land when the blessing of His presence becomes the gift we receive — and give.
I found this beautiful sentence in a book I'm reading.
It explains how a person in love with the Lord can rest in Him even in the worst of circumstances, how an earthly trial can be viewed as the Promised Land when we abide deeply in Him.
When we accept this gift from Him - we can also give this gift. With eyes never wavering from Him we show the world our true Savior - taking a step away from the busy world and abiding...
Looking deeply into others' eyes - really hearing them - really caring, demonstrating to them in a very small way a glimpse of His love.
This is the place in which I long to abide.
