One Thousand Gifts (continued)

"Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him" (Ephesians 3:17 NLT).

We are getting ready to welcome new residents to our home.  They have been busy preparing a nest/home.  We look forward to this home being occupied.
I am so grateful that Christ desires to "make His home in my heart".  Often, I let other things occupy my heart which pushes Christ out of my heart.  I am so thankful that He longs to make residency not only in my heart, but my whole being.  I want to make room for Christ to dwell in my heart and soul and to allow Him to be the source of my life!  Thank-you, Jesus!

Continuing to give thanks...
