1 Peter 2:11 Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls. (NLT)

I am a born again believer, a Christian, a child of God and this earth is NOT my home. I’m happy to be alive and on this earth, but the biblical fact is I never was meant to stay here because a home is being prepared for me and it’s real and I’m going.

John 14:1-4 Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

One of my favorite songs is Home, which is the song from the movie and play called The Wiz.

Every time I hear that song I think of my heavenly home and I smile. Heaven is where I started out. One day when I was in deep prayer God told me I started out as a thought in His mind and then He gave me life through my earthly mom and dad. For a child who grew up thinking I was a mistake because of a learning disability , God’s comment to me meant more than I could say. I cried and cried at the thought that I didn’t just happen to be here on earth, I was a planned pregnancy from my Father in heaven. No matter how we arrive on this planet, we were not an afterthought but planned from the heart of God. Halleluiah!!

Psalms 139: 13-17 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!

So you can see why in my heart I long for home. Someone who loves me so much is there and He’s planned for me to be there with Him one day. Many members of my family are there already. I have two brothers I’ve never seen. My brother Mervin Mckelvin who got to go very early at the age of 2 years old and my brother Jesus who I know because we share the same Spirit and I’ll get to see them both face to face. He told me He will come and get me if I don’t come there first.

I’m waiting brother….I got on my good pajamas….(smiling here)….come back and take me……….home! ( Read archived post on the good pajamas)

Message for today: It won’t be long before we go home. Do what you can while you’re here…..and always keep your heavenly home on your heart.

P.S. “When I think of Home I do a happy dance in my heart!!”
