Where are you?

Sing to the Lord a new song;
sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them.
Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy....
The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad;
let the distant shores rejoice.
Psalm 96:1, 11-12; 97:1

Are you glad that the Lord reigns? Do you know that he reigns now? 

Life is not about existing until we die and then going to heaven or hell. Life is about living, now.

If you believe God created all things and that he does nothing without purpose and meaning, then you must understand that he has a purpose for you, here and now. 

We are like a puzzle piece. Cut and designed for a spot in the bigger picture. To deny that or attempt to live as a puzzle piece outside of the bigger picture is absurd.

Consider the absurdity of purchasing a 3-ring binder and trying to use it as a chair. This is the picture of all creation - man and nature - fighting against his intended purpose.
Say among the nations, "The Lord reigns." Psalm 96:10
Right now there are two kingdoms. Are you enjoying the kingdom designed for all creation? If not, come on over. There is a spot created especially for you.
