My Special Guest

Two friends are coming over. They are bringing all the fixings for dinner and they have offered to help me with some housework. (Thanks Angie & Nikki!) Their help is a huge blessing for me yet even more just their presence in my home and the fellowship with them excites me! I enjoy having house guests. My parents even call my home their personal bed and breakfast. :)

What do you do when you have visitors coming over? Well if you're like me, then you get the house all ready. I like to clean and straighten up when guests are on their way. My desire is to have a home that is safe, warm, and relaxing for friends and family. During my Coffee & Cozy this morning, I shut my eyes and tried to put my post called Trust the Picture into practice. I focused on only God and found myself picturing a scene from Isaiah 6. As I sat there picturing God, suddenly everything changed and I envisioned him walking into my living room. All I saw was his presence walk in and his robe fill my whole living room. Whoa!

I felt myself get so excited to think that the God of the Universe would just walk in and be my special guest. Then I remembered that the Creator is always present! (Check out: Ps. 46:1, Ps. 89:15, Ps. 139:7) He's always here, I just forget. In Luke 14:2b, Jesus says that he is leaving earth to prepare a place for his followers. I started asking myself, "Have a prepared a place for the Lord in my home? At my job? In my schedule? Do I set up my times with God the way I get ready for a guest in my home or does He just get the 'left overs'? "

So today I decided to spend time remembering and reflecting that my God is always my Special Guest. Today my focus is to give Him ALL my best! :)
