Moving Day


Moving Day

By Susie Teramura


I have decided

To move


With You.


I am packing up

My stuff,

Memories and

Trinkets and



All the things

I own

And I am

Taking them

To Your home.


Because I see now

Your place is

The safest place.


So I am,

Moving in

All of me,

Settling into

Spaces there.


I am making You

My home and

My resting place.


You are

Warm and kind

And full of grace.


You serve up

The finest tea,

And love to

Sit and chat

With me,


And when I am

With You

There is no


No rush,

No hurry,

No next,


To do.


You invite me

Sit long

And take

Off my shoes.


We talk and

Laugh and

Watch the fire glow.


The best part is

I never have

To go.


You will never imply

My leaving or

Shoo me out

The door,


You always

Invite me

To stay

For just a little

bit more,


More of

Your peace,

And presence,

And love,


More of your gifts


From above,


More kindness,


And overflowing joy,


So instead of

Just visiting today

I am moving in

And going to stay,


For near You

Is a place,

Saved just

For me,


A place where

I can rest and

Finally be free,



Are in charge

And taking care

Of me.


          Psalm 73:28 (ESV)

But for me it is good to be near God;

I have made the Lord God my refuge,

that I may tell of all your works.


           Psalm 73:28(MSG)

But I’m in the very presence of God—

oh, how refreshing it is!

I’ve made Lord God my home.

God, I’m telling the world what you do!



   Psalm 65:4 Amplified Bible (AMP)

 Blessed is the one whom You choose and bring near

To dwell in Your courts.

We will be filled with the goodness of Your house,

Your holy temple.

    1. Hi Sarah-I too am so thankful he takes all of me and that I don’t have to get it all together before I am invited to come. Thanks so much for visiting me today! with love

  1. Amen! to all of this, Susie. I love it! I am moving in with Him along with you. 🙂 It’s the best place to be. Thank you for refreshing and comforting my heart. Love and hugs to you!

    1. Hi Trudy! it is the best place to be- I have been thinking about what it means to abide in Him- and working out what living in Him is really supposed to look like. He is so wonderful and to think we are invited to remain in and with him all day! His love is so amazing and feels like home- I just need to learn to stay put there instead of venturing out on my own to find the things I already have in Him. So great to connect with you Trudy! Much love and hugs.

  2. Susie,
    I love these thoughts and they’re beautifully written! Imagining never leaving a place that is so comforting and grace-filled is what we should be reflecting on when we think of visiting with God. You’ve put words to the idea of inhabiting a space with God, even to drinking tea with him and having him delight in us while we find our delight in him. Visiting him isn’t just an item on our to-do list — it’s like coming home to a loved one every day! Sending love to you and hope all is well! xoxo

  3. Hi Valerie-So great to connect with you. I have been thinking about abiding and remaining in Christ and what it really means. I came to the conclusion it is like coming home. It’s the place where our souls belong and are made to settle I think. I seem to always go hunting for things I need in other places when all I need is right there in Him! Sending a hug and much love back!
