Longing for Home

There’s nothing quite like stepping off the plane and pausing to breathe in the air of a place you’ve never been before. There is so much to explore and even more to discover.

But no matter where the adventure takes you, your heart will eventually turns towards home again, especially when the going gets tough.

The bible calls us ‘foreigners’ and ‘travellers’ who are merely passing through this life, so there will therefore be times when we long for our true home.

Romans 8:23a says that,

‘Even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory… we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering’ – (NLT)

Sometimes our pain and sadness can simply be explained by the fact that we aren’t home yet.

But there will come a day when we finally arrive home and as Revelations 7:16 and 17 says,

‘[We] will never again be hungry or thirsty… [for our] Shepherd… will lead [us] to springs of life-giving water. And [He] will wipe every tear from [our] eyes”.

Give yourself a moment to breathe in and enjoy the adventure of this life, but never forget that you’re true home is with Jesus.
