I enjoy my early morning devotional time with my Lord. I never feel so close to Him as when I am in His word, the Bible.
This morning as I turned to today's date in "Our Daily Bread", the title was "A Place to Be". It made me stop and think, really think on that word and what it meant. Places brings back memories hidden deep within us of times gone by good or not so good. Places where we may have lived and was sad or happy. In my 53+ years of marriage I have lived in many different places I called home.
Each time I would work to make it a home where we could be comfortable. I think maybe if I had lived in one place so long I may have gotten too comfortable and would forget what Jesus said in John 14:1-2
"I am going ... to prepare a place for you" !
There's a much better place waiting for those of us that have placed our faith and hope in the Lord.
He has a place for us that exceeds any place on earth we might have. I've learned not to put all my hope and joy in earthly homes, for I have a better place to look forward too!
"And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am you may be also".
John 14: 3
Dear Jesus, I wait for my home with you that you've promised to have prepared for me.
Thank you that I can look forward to a much better place than what this world has.
Have a Blessed Sunday!
