As we walked in the door of our quarters it felt good. It's always good to be home. We've learned through the years of many quarters that you really sense the comfort of being home after you've been away. In the first few months of a new appointment, we know we're settling in when that "home sweet home" sensation hits returning from a trip or assignment.
More and more, though, I'm feeling less at home on this planet. There's a home prepared for each of us who know Jesus as Lord. Much of what is going on around us in this world makes me less comfortable, recognising that heaven is my home with the Lord. One day, by the promise of God we will be home. Many of our family members and friends have already gone there. Hallelujah!
John 14:2 (KJV)
2 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.
