2 Corinthians 5:1 (NIV 1984)
Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.
Sometimes we are torn between our love and appreciation for God’s earthly creation and our desire to be with the Lord in our heavenly home. We may yearn for a place that is free from pain, tears, injustice, and every day struggles. God has, however, placed us here. He has a plan and a purpose for each of our lives. He has promised the Holy Spirit to comfort and guide us as we travel on our earthly journey. May the Holy Spirit sustain us until the time when we are taken home to be with the Lord. However, until that time comes, may we faithfully serve Him. (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
