There is nothing on earth that can truly compare to Heaven, and the closest we get to heaven on earth is living in the presence of the God of Heaven. Every joy on earth that we’ve experienced is a temporal shadow when compared to the deep and abiding joy and peace we find when living close to God.

It is truly a bit of Heaven to experience His peace and joy carry us through ANY kind of day.

To find this, we must find our center in THE center—which is God’s will! There, we don’t have to worry, plot, stress, or debase ourselves to find joy and peace. We simply listen and do what God says. How do we do that? In a lively and passionate relationship with Him, as well as an active heart-knowledge of the wisdom from His Word. The Bible says: “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts…You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” (Isaiah 55:9,12)  

This is not some arrogant statement by God; rather, it is a necessary truth He has given us to grasp so we might connect to reality. God is the source of all knowledge, love, strength, wisdom and everything good. He tells us this straight-up because we tend to live our life like we are smarter than He is. When we get this truth and learn to be centered in Him, then God’s joy and peace carry us through every trial, trouble and heartache.

Living in His presence defies human logic, and the experience is simply inexplicable!  

Up until recently, I had no idea what it even meant to experience living in the center of God’s will. It was not until I started pursuing God with the same passion which I have pursued so many lesser things that I found myself in this amazing and indescribable place of joy and peace. I want everyone to pursue God and find the center of His will and discover thier joyful and glorious purpose!
