Where God dwells

I grew up in a small country church.

And I have many fond memories of that building.

The creak of old flooring and wooden pews beneath me.

The smell of musty hymnals and lingering perfume.

The simplicity of the pulpit.

The organ.

The piano.

The orderly gathering of choir chairs.

The thick wooden table at the front.

With a simple gold cross in the middle, a white candlestick on each side.

And stained glass windows, muting the morning sun.

It’s why I still love to walk into a church sanctuary today.

As my senses step into the space, that little church of my childhood reappears.

God uses such settings to give us a heightened sense of his presence.

To embrace the peacefulness they provide to tune into his voice.

But the good news is that we don’t have to go to a building to experience that.

Because God doesn’t dwell within brick and mortar.

Instead, he dwells within all who seek that kind of relationship.

And that can happen no matter where we are.
