this world is not my home

For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness; His countenance beholds the upright.

Psalm 11:7

There are days when I feel my “this world is not my home” status very keenly … it makes me homesick for a home I have not yet seen. I was feeling it keenly this weekend. I want to see my Papa’s face, and belong somewhere! You know what, His face is already turned toward me, as I turn mine toward His. I felt Him tell me, Let My acceptance and welcoming of you make you glad! You might be a sojourner on this earth, for it is not your home … but don’t be sad that you are not home yet. Instead be glad that your home is sure, and secure, and prepared for you. Be glad that your future cannot be altered, changed, or taken from you. Be glad that every day that passes, you are one day closer to your real home. You have a future and a hope, so hope in it.
