My husband and I recently went on a little road trip and as we drove through a small town, I noticed a sign in front of a business stating they were ‘eventually relocating’ to another building/location.
That phrase stuck in my head because when it comes right down to it, that is true for all of us.
This place is not my home.
We are only here on this earth for a short time—however many days God sees fit to give us. My days may almost be up, or I may live to be 100. Only God knows for certain.
What I do know is, eventually I will be relocating – to my heavenly home. And I’m not terribly upset at that thought.
Don’t get me wrong. I love my time here on earth with my family and friends. I appreciate the beauty of this world that God has given us. We are truly blessed.
On the other hand, there is so much evil in this world. At times I can’t understand why God hasn’t thrown His hands up in the air and just said “ENOUGH ALREADY” and destroyed us all.
Fortunately, He is a merciful God, slow to anger. And we should be very thankful that is the case.
Eventually though, I know I will be leaving this earthly home of mine and trading it in for another, better, even more beautiful place.
I can hardly wait!
“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
John 14: 1-3
