What's S-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g me now?

Better Than This

From some of my reading this morning…
 
Psalm 84:1-12

     1 How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts!  2 My
    soul longs, indeed it faints for the courts of the Lord; my
    heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.  3 Even the
    sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where
    she may lay her young, at your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King
    and my God.  4 Happy are those who live in your house, ever
    singing your praise. (Selah)  5 Happy are those whose strength
    is in you, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.  6 As they
    go through the valley of Baca they make it a place of springs;
    the early rain also covers it with pools.  7 They go from
    strength to strength; the God of gods will be seen in Zion.

     8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of
    Jacob! (Selah)  9 Behold our shield, O God; look on the face of
    your anointed.  10 For a day in your courts is better than a
    thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house
    of my God than live in the tents of wickedness.  11 For the Lord
    God is a sun and shield; he bestows favor and honor. No good
    thing does the Lord withhold from those who walk uprightly.  12
    O Lord of hosts, happy is everyone who trusts in you.

Is it clear enough, that being with God in heaven is way, way, way,… better than whatever we have going on right now or than whatever we are looking forward to in the future.
 
Just a thought…
