Going Home

A two day trip brought us to a small town in Illinois, our destination for the rest of the week. Our brother-in-law had gone home to be with the Lord, and we had come to celebrate his life. 

There is joy and sadness in death. Joy that a loved one had returned home to be with the Lord for all eternity. A sadness that his physical presence would be missed by us earth bound friends and relatives. Even the skies cried with us that day. But the service was a celebration of his life of one who had been lost until he found Jesus. And then a new creature evolved and we rejoiced together. In the coffin lay just a body, no soul, no spirit. It's an empty tent if you will; that's all that's left on earth when one dies. The soul and spirit have moved on into the rest of their eternity. This one knew Jesus, so we knew where he had gone.

What a wonderful thought to spend the rest of eternity with our loving God and our brothers and sisters who have accepted Jesus' gift of redemption. 



Here on earth being in the Presence of God is an experience like no other. It is being surrounded in an atmosphere of peace and joy. It’s an intimacy with our Lord and Savior, like spending time with a dear friend, only better.

Psalm 16:11 
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Here in the earthly realm it only lasts for a limited time until some worldly concern. . . time. . . duty. . .another’s need  steals us away. Yet my God indwells me, so He is always with me and willing to join in conversation or teaching or just be-ing together all the time. It’s my lack that cuts it short. Teach me Holy Spirit how to go deeper so I am aware of and in touch with Your presence constantly.



Already I have relationship with You. I love You, and I have no fear about coming home to You; rather I will rejoice in it. Father, help me to do my job, my mission in the world well. I love You! When we meet at home we'll both rejoice, because I know You love and treasure me too.
