Invitation Accepted

Would the seat be empty or just apparently so?
Who might come to sit, ponder the moment, offer insight, share an exchange?
Might the companion be ethereal; ever present, attentive, ear inclined to whispers, murmurs, or sighs.

Might the seat be consistently held by listeners from places divine;
an angel of mercy, a guardian assigned, the spirit of the heavens, or the power MOST divine.

Would the seat ever be empty through a life given by sacred design?

Seated with glory in the kingdom beyond,
how could the preferred chair in the orchestra of my life
compare to the diadem most royal?

Yet the chair has been taken, claimed since memory could record.
The invitation accepted, a standing reservation filled.
The chair is never empty if the heart wills it so.

As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; 

I will never leave you nor forsake you. 

Joshua 1:5

Pursuing a Grace-FULL Life

Precious drops of pink petals hanging gracefully from the thinest of tendrils. 

I hovered over them angling for a frame that best revealed their stunning form and intricate design. 

Does my Lord hover so tenderly, so intently over me searching my life for the most becoming elements, those becoming most Christ like? Does He capture a glimpse of something pleasing in the frame that reveals my pursuit of a Grace-FULL life?

Joyfully joining the Five Minute writing community using the prompt GRACEFUL.

Go to the House of the Lord

I rejoice with those who said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the Lord.”
                                                                              Psalm 122:1

Chapel doors stand transparent with handles smoothed for the grasping, eager to swing wide in invitation and hospitality. The Lord's church, living and breathing, welcomes the hungry heart to be nourished by praise, prayer, and  worship. I love the body of  Christ's church for all that it encourages me to be.
