With so many traveling this week, it’s made me ponder.
As a young child, I remember asking every time we went on a road trip, “Are we there yet?” We always drove. My patience level was not the best for such lengthy travel. I always wanted to be there. Or back home.
With all the drama. The trauma. The killings. The untruths. The prejudisms. That this life holds. I’m often saddened and overwhelmed by the state our world is currently in.
Then I remind myself. This is not where I belong.
When I am weary from the evil in this world, I turn to the words of a favorite Christian song. It gives me peace. I remember that’s why I don’t fit in. Why I don’t agree with so much of the direction our world is moving in.
All I know is I’m not home yet. 🎵 This is not where I belong. 🎶
This is just my temporary home. My training grounds. For something much greater. Something I cannot fathom in my current state of being.
My true home is in heaven. For eternity. With my lord and savior. This earthly home is but a mere passing in the grand scheme of things.
But as I live here, I want to make it the best it can be. Not just for myself, but those around me. I want to share with others that there’s much greater real estate just on the other side of this lifetime. As my eternal father prepares a place for me. An eternal place. And for you.
I encourage you, if life has you frustrated, overwhelmed, ready to give up on better days. Don’t despair. The best is yet to come!Always remember. It’s just temporary. Life will change. You’re not home yet. This is not where you belong.
But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city. Hebrews 11:16
