I am homesick, are you?
There are really these times in our life that we are consciously aware of the struggles and problems we’ve been through, times when we are drowning in life’s weary way, thoughts like…
Lord, why are these happening to me?
What did I do to deserve all these things?
Why not other else?
Lord, do You really love me?
Lord, Why are You so unfair?
I hate this life!
If only I didn’t born in this world!
Should I just die?
God are You really love?
And so on… cross in our minds. What we sometimes forgot is that everything happens for a reason and that God loves us so much. We overlooked that everything in this world are transitory and that everything is passing. Yet we are living deeply in this world as if it is our home, which is definitely not. We are but strangers in this world. We are questioning the present yet we didn’t even look and sometimes didn’t care for the future. We are so busy dwelling in this world that we forgot our true home which is truly sad , as much as I am ashamed to admit. This sin marred world, (despite the fact that we are God’s children) because of sin is full of wars, hunger, sickness, poverty, loneliness, anger, cruelty, violence, unending trials, injustice and the list goes on. Aren’t you homesick for heaven? Heaven is perfect. It is where God dwells! It is our real Home!
I am so homesick for Heaven. Are you?
God has promised in Revelation 21:3,4, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God Himself shall be with them and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes and there shall be no more death neither sorrow nor crying, neither shall there be anymore pain: for the former things are passed away.” Amen!
