I think I got a taste of Heaven today.
It was phenomenal. Like time stands still, never want to leave that moment phenomenal.
Beauty that cannot be captured, that cannot be described.
I went on a prayer walk with about 50 other locals through Ocean View (the township I live in). As we walked through the streets, there was a steady melody of hymns and praises being sung gently and sensitively over the land. Local voices calling out praises. Interceding on behalf of their people, of their family, of their community. Walking together. Side by side. Step by step.
An army of the living God.
As we ended the prayer walk, we stopped and gathered in this small park. The weather was surreal, the sun beating down just perfectly. As we circled, I couldn't help but just close my eyes and listen to the voices sing. Surrounded by the scenery of one of the worlds most beautiful creations, trying desperately to soak in the absolute beauty of the moment.
In the circle around me stood men, women, children, grandmothers. A people of mixed races, of all ages, of all types of backgrounds. Standing in one place. Singing to the glory of the throne.
Enveloped with love. Surrounded by grace. Immersed in beauty.
A small taste of Heaven.
