Have you come across a verse or two that has inspired you recently?
This meant a great deal to me this past week:
In junior high school, our class would often sing:
"This world is not my home, I'm just a-traveling through.
If heaven's not my home, then Lord what will I do?
The angels beckon me, from heaven's open door, and
I can't feel at home in this world any more!"
Of course, most junior high students have no clue what they are really singing about. Not really. You don't get that kind of wisdom and life-knowledge until you have lived a little longer!
Having dealt with death in our family this year, these verses and songs mean even more to me. Isn't this a precious promise?
(I Corinthians 15:51-52)I'm reminded of a quote from one of my favorite authors:
“Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.” ~ C.S. LewisHas a verse inspired you recently, and will you share it with all of us?
