The islands shall see your glory

The wars shall see your might

The nations shall see your beauty

Awestruck at your sight

.

The humble shall see your glory

The pure shall see your face

The oppressed shall see your mercy

The past to be erased

.

The earth shall see your glory

The works of your hand

Creation sings your melody

All across this land

.

Children shall see your glory

And babes speak your praise

Sons and daughters of destiny

Running to win the race

.

And we shall see your glory

As we overcome

Praying breathes of intimacy

Come Lord Jesus come

On the ski slopes

By Samuel Liu

This is what the LORD says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? ¬†Where will my resting place be?”

Isaiah 66:1

In the Old Testament, Israel built tabernacles and the Temple in Jerusalem as the “house of the Lord,” the resting place where God’s manifest presence dwelled on the earth. In the New Testament, Paul writes that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 6:19), and so now, the house that we build for God is not a physical building, but an internal “garden” within our hearts.

A garden locked is my sister, my bride, a spring locked, a fountain sealed…

Let my beloved come to his garden, and eat its choicest fruits.

Song of Solomon 4:12, 16

It is interesting to note that, as the word “temple” conveys a sense of holiness, glory, majesty, reverence, and awe, the word “garden” depicts rest, fellowship, leisure, and pleasure. God has already established his throne (temple) in heaven, so it is no wonder the first place He created to meet with man on the earth was a garden, the Garden of Eden.

Today, for each of us to build the house of God in our lives, we need to cultivate the garden within our hearts, so God can come and walk with us in our gardens. How do we prepare our gardens for the Lord? There are many keys. One key is to constantly sow the Word of God into the soil of our hearts, to bear much fruit, as Jesus depicted in the parable of the sower (Mark 4:20). As we spend time immersing ourselves in the Word of God, we are building a house of devotion to the Lord, and providing a resting place for Him to dwell.

Hope arise out of ashes
Gems arise out of trashes
Gold arise out of darkness
And jewels arise out of messes

Beauty arise out of chaos
Peace arise out of madness
Joy arise out of sadness
And laughter arise out of us

Love arise out of hearts
Praise arise from the arts
Worship arise from the earth
And God arise out of us

Courage arise from your people
Boldness arise in your saints
Mercy arise to crush the evil
And grace arise to dance

Faith arise out of children
Songs arise out of thanks
Power arise from the broken
And dreams arise from romance

welcome home…

...to a place where you can relax and refresh your spirit.

Draw close to God.
Get intimate with Him.
Drink until you overflow
with His love.

Here are some spiritual nourishments for your soul. Read the devotionals, poems, and songs. Soak and be filled in His presence. Enjoy!

Come to me,
all you who labor
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

Matt 11:28
