My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?
New International Version (NIV)
I know that God is here with me, but I want that absolute presence. Heaven waits, but how long must I wait? It would be comforting and joyous to walk with Jesus, to talk to him, and to sit at his feet listening to his teachings.
But God has not abandoned us. We have prayers and meditation that can bring us closer to him. God speaks to us through His Word in the Holy Bible. Comfort comes through the Holy Spirit. God's presence is all around us in nature and the vast universe.
Wait patiently. God is here and our time in eternity is coming if we are receptive to God in our life.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.
English Standard Version (ESV)
