Just One Day in His Court — 19 Comments

  1. What a beautiful WFW… I sincerely enjoyed that. Sometimes it is hard to fathom how blessed we are, to be able to sit with the Lord, meet with Him personally and freely.

    Blessings to you today…

  2. Lovely picture!

    I am grateful that we can enter into His court on a daily basis! We enter into His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Wow, the creator of the universe allows us to come into His presence! Thank you for the reminder!

    Happy WFW!

  3. Beautifully written, Janis. I’m grateful that I don’t have to go a specific location to dwell in His courts. Sometimes my car, the church building, my bedroom or even my hallway is His courts for me. Have a great WFW!

  4. I love singing that song…but I also love the verse and for some reason I cannot explain it was very real for me in my three years in Bible College.
    I love to think that quiet time alone with God and His word is for me a special place of dwelling.

  5. you know Janis, this is beautiful…what a reflection! It is indeed better in HIS courts for one day…how often we forget that and try to make this earth something it will never be…


  6. Praise God ! What a beautiful picture to illustrate!

    But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matt 6:33
    Have a great day!

  7. Love this! We sang this song at my husband’s funeral, and everytime I hear it I remember how JOYOUS a time he is having dancing with our Savior in Heaven! Better is one day there than a thousand days here! Amen!

    Happy WFW!

  8. Thank you everyone for your insights on this verse and how the Lord has blessed you in your quiet times of dwelling with Him.
    May you each find joy, love, comfort, and peace in His courts.

    From My Heart to Yours,

  9. Such a joy to find you! I’ve enjoyed wandering and reading…

    I LOVED this picture – just an earthly “taste” of what glory we will behold when we see HIS face!!


  10. Very good thoughts! I love that song and often say and sing that verse because I truly feel that I would rather be at church with believers than anywhere else but you are right that we do have that capability within our hearts and in our homes. But there is something about being in church that I absolutely love! Love you, too! Karen

  11. Sharon,

    It’s amazing how the Lord reveals something different to each person as He inspires them through His Holy Spirit.
    I had to look again at the photo, myself. And then I saw the golden streets of heaven. You are so right. Just an earthly “taste” of what is to come.
    Thank you for stopping by and becoming a follower. I’m glad you found it comfortable here.
    From My Heart to Yours,

  12. We are so blessed to have the Holy Spirit living inside us! I love this line, “We are blessed because His court is here with us wherever we are and all day long as we pause to dwell on Him.”

    Thank you for these encouraging words!
