There’s a crowd in my heart.
A crowd of longing. Longing for the things of God. Longing to be more like Him. Longing to glorify Him with my every thought, word, and deed.
A crowd of hope. Hope that I can be used by God for His purposes to bring light and joy and comfort to others. Hope that I will be found faithful in the eyes of the Lord. Hope that everything I do will shout His love to others.
A crowd of joy. Joy that my heavenly Father loves me…is working in me and on me and through me. Joy that Jesus has saved me from all that is ugly and cold and dark in my soul. Joy that this life is not all there is…there’s an eternity in heaven.
There’s a crowd in my heart—longing for all that God is, for the hope He brings, for the joy He gives.
