Living together

Like our ancestors we are nomadic aliens -- displaced refugees. Everything feels so unsettled and temporary. Our days on earth seem hopeless -- like an ever shifting shadow. ~ 1 Chronicles 29:15 (ABP)

Jesus said: ‘There is no shortage of room in my father's house. There's a home for all who want to live with him.’ ~ John 14:2 (ABP)

All who feel displaced are welcome to live in God's house.
Dear God, thank you for the invitation to live with you. I confess my procrastination toward moving in with you. I'm taking my time. Help me to more fully realize that it isn't really "my" time but that you are eager for us to live together starting now. I'm going to settle down with you. Amen.
