Meet Me In The Upper Room
Little can always become great in the Hands and Heart of God.
What is it your heart cries for?
What is it that your soul yearns for?
There is a wanderlust of soul the Holy One in Heaven has ignited and He is delighted to stir it and yield something more.
Whatever your day holds—
Be it grand and important with many hands dependent upon you, many minds, many mouths to. Or maybe it is you alone in your world you have to behold. God is in it. He is there with you now.
He is the Aircraft of Splendor that lifts the heart, elates the mind and floods us with Hope. It is as though we soared high above the cares of this world in an airplane and landed in a destination called Decided by Heaven.
God has had a plan for you all along. Everything involving your life He knew about since the beginning. That includes everything. Everything. And He will use it all if you allow it.
It is in the Splendor called Today that we are at this moment meant to do good. It is in these moments Providence has placed us that we should consider a holy place. His soul beacons us to His Upper Room.
In the Bible the upper room is an actual place, also known as the Cenacle, an upper room of a building where the disciples of Jesus and the Rabbi himself fed. Where the last supper was served(John 14—16), where Jesus washed the disciples feet (John 13:1–20), the Resurrected revealed himself, Thomas’ doubts were put to ease (John 20:24– 29), and where the Holy Spirit came like tongues of fire upon the people (Acts 2:4).
My Beloved, the Holy Spirit wears you upon His wrist as though you were His charm bracelet. His cherished adornment.
The Crown Jewel of Heaven sees Holiness in you.
So whatever your day holds, in the midst of it you can experience His Upper Room. It isn’t just a place, it is a disposition inside of you. And in His quiet service, doing whatever He has given our hands to do, we belong.
“The smallest things become great when God requires them of us; they are small only in themselves; they are always great when they are done for God, and when they serve to unite us with Him eternally.”
Francois De Fenelon
He longs to spend time with you and He’s got all of Eternity.
His heart is engaged to you. Engage your heart to Him to. There is Glory and Splendor in the Room.
God is doing something big, I can feel it in my bones. He is creating a frame and calling them by name who’s hearts are fully willing for Him. They are Holy. They are Set Apart. They are His good luck pieces that He has heavily invested in and they shine like a beautiful bracelet draped upon His wrist.
You are Beautiful. Not for anything you’ve done or are yet to do. You are beautiful because that’s just you. Your beauty extends beyond your eyes, your complexion, your stature or your smile. It’s not the clothes you wear. It is so much more. It’s your heart. You’ve been through a lot. You’ve been forgotten by more. But God has not ever forgotten you. He sees you and He holds you, Adorned.
Meet Him in the Upper Room. It is a quiet place, a sanctuary of soul. You need to be alone and it needs to be quiet. For even in the stillness of night or when the troubles seem dark as the Night—you will hear Him. He will enter. He will elevate your every care. His love for you is like a blister on the heart. It cannot be ignored. It is swollen.
The Holy Spirit is a Gentleman. He never forces Himself upon anyone. But He waits, and He whispers, and He yearns for Compassion with Humanity and He desires Friendship with you.
In a quote of an author who’s name I cannot recall, he was writing to his love and it went a little something like this...
“You are my friend and you are my lover, but I cannot decide which part of you I love more.”
Wrap yourself around this notion, Dear One. The Almighty, the Blessed Trinity, The Holy Spirit came to be both Friend and Lover. He is the deepest lover of our soul. And He is a most faithful friend, and to have experienced both aspects of Him in this life can make even the smallest or most seemingly insignificant tasks never feel dry. The Holy Spirit grooms us with it so that we, His Bride, might be made ready to meet our Groom.
Last month I stepped into the Upper Room in Jerusalem and it has only caused my soul to want Him more. He is my Lover and He is my Friend and I can’t decide which part I enjoy more. I’m so glad I don’t have to decide.
I need Him more.
Meet me in the Upper Room.
