A Song of Ascents. Of David... I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!” Psalm 122:1 ESV
The other day I told someone on facebook, “See You Sunday!” It was a short response but a loving one, as I was excited to see this person at church in a few days. Some people are just so precious, you miss them until you see them again at church, right? The Lord is so good to bless us with the friendships of His other children. For what other reasons do we look forward to Sunday?
We get to SEE many things! We see families coming together to praise Jesus. We see a spirit-filled praise band sharing their passion with us. We get to see people come forward to pray for help from the Lord. We see little ones bouncing around the sanctuary, excited to see their friends. The list goes on and on. I see these things as gifts straight from the Lord. He binds us in His family with lots of family love and shows us, everywhere we look around the church, how blessed we are!
Who do we mainly want to see? We want to see the Lord of course! We can say, “See You Sunday,” to Him and be excited it means we look forward to experiencing Him in His house. Do we ever say that to Him? Maybe not, because we pray and worship at home too. But I am thinking, maybe we should say that to Him!
And so a poem begins…
I love You here. I love You there.
Lord, I love You everywhere!
The most special place I see
is anywhere You are with me.
Your house is such a special place
Where I can come to seek Your face.
In Your house or mine at home,
My greatest joy comes from Your throne.
See You Sunday, Lord, I vow
to seek You then and seek You now.

When we say, “See You Sunday” to friends, it is something to look forward to, for sure. However, we can see and experience Jesus in our hearts every day! His throne is anywhere we let Him rule. I am trying to imagine what the Lord sees when He looks down from heaven, but also looks out from our hearts. It must make Him happy that we love each other and love Him and look forward to being together. See You Sunday!
With love from our awesome Father to you,
