    Joseph; Your post got me thinking about, "How do I 'Make' the LORD my dwelling? I always find so much when I learn what words mean, even most common ones. For example, in Collins English Dictionary, one definition (transitive verb) of "MAKE;" "If you MAKE someone something, you appoint them to a particular job, role, or position." So we by our faith and love Appoint God to the Role and Position!
