Today -like many days- I am overwhelmed. I remember what life was like before real and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, and I am in awe of how He could take someone like me and make such an indelible and undeniable change. I'm thinking, today, of how He has given me all that I need. I'm pondering His grace and His mercy and His love and His promises and my heart is bursting with the lyrics and melody of a brand new song. I can relate to King David, the psalmist. In Psalm 34:10, he says:

Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

This reality that I have found in my Redeemer is irreplaceable and priceless. I haven't a clue what anyone could offer me to turn away from Him. If I was given the chance to choose between one day in the Presence of my King and a thousand days in the lap of luxury, my choice would be simple. I would choose Jesus. I would choose Him every time.

I'm not well-versed in very many things, but of this one thing I am sure: I am desperate to know Jesus. I am desperate to see Him face to face and to know His heart. I have been redeemed. If I lost everything else, of this I can be sure. I am His. He is mine. The very thought of this brings words of uncommon praise to my heart and from my lips.

It is true that in a mathematical equation, the gift of one day with Jehovah is greater than the offer of a thousand days in any other place. This God, this King, is more immense than the sound or formation of any word, but I will not relent until I know Him fully, as I am fully known. I will not stop the songs, I will not cease to praise until it is made known to all who care to hear that there is a God who is greater, more perfect, more immeasurable than any other thing that could ever exist.
