Food For Thought – September 9, 2007

9 09 2007

“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 to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and recieve you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
John 14:2-3

There were times when these verses kept me breathing. Times when I clung to them to remember I have a home. That if all the world is crumbling around me, He is coming again. He will come to recieve me.

Being a lover of God also means making yourself a foreigner to this world. We wander this place, foriegn to everything. Even in the same towns were were born, we are never truly home. We never find where we belong and we are always looking for something more. Something that says, “This is your place here.”

So when I have those deep, longing feelings of being homesick, in Korea or the U.S. or any other country, I remember my room in my Father’s hosue is waiting for me. It is being prepared for me. So I can be thankful for the days that I feel foreign to every place and every person, because my days here are numbered, but my homecoming will be eternal.

J.B.
