A Simple Reminder
“This day will bring me nearer home.”
Sometimes the simplest statements are also the most profound. Sometimes the most obvious concepts are also the most overlooked.
When I read the above quote in Valley of Vision (a book of Puritan prayers) this morning, it was like the thought had never even crossed my mind. I stopped, reflected on it, re-read it, and haven’t stopped repeating it to myself all day.
There’s not much to say as the quote can certainly stand alone; however, I am thankful for the reminder that though world is not my home, each passing day here brings me closer to the moment when God, by grace, welcomes me into my eternal Home.
I can’t wait.
