The World is Wonderful

When we’re with someone we love

Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your alter, O Lord Almighty, my King and my God. Psalm 84:3

I have felt the pain of being away from someone I loved and I have enjoyed the feeling of contentment and peace of having a loved one near. This is what David longs for in this verse of the Psalm—to be always near to God.

When we’re in God’s presence, the world is right and good and full of peace and love. Unfortunately, we often allow ourselves to be snatched from God’s presence and thrown into the turmoil of the world. We can be riding peacefully on the merry-go-round of God’s love and goodness, and suddenly the bully of bullies—Satan—gives it a tremendous shove, and we find ourselves spinning wildly out of control hanging on for dear life.

God is always with us, and if we focus on Him, He will slow the spinning and make things clear. If we ride this earthly ride with the love and faith of God in our hearts, the experience can be one of enjoyment rather than one of frightening intensity.
