Some days you wish it would come sooner than others. On the days when the dog runs away…again. On the days when the freezer breaks and spoils all the contents. On the days when your child’s cell phone is stolen and discovered in the toliet in the boy’s bathroom. This has been my week. It is on these days that the comfort from the book of Job is so precious.
“I myself will see Him with my own eyes – I, not another. How my heart yearns within me!” Job 19:27 NIV
Friend, when all else seems to be falling apart, remember…you were not made for this world; we were made for heaven. I’ll paraphrase C.S. Lewis (that’s not a sin is it?) – If nothing else in this world satisfies, maybe you were not made for this world, but for another.
On the days when nothing goes right and on the days when everything goes right, let us remember we were made for heaven. This world is not our home.
Can’t wait for that day!
Have a beautiful weekend!
