Life is a journey. It's not just about the destination
Hello everyone this Tom writing to You...
You just clicked on a link entitled, "Where do you want to go?" I'm sure some of you clicked on it because you are just curious, peeking around and that's OK. But for many others, you are seriously looking for a place to go. Possibly for a place to fit in. I understand this longing.
For many of us who call ourselves Christians, we somewhere at some point in our life started this journey with Him. We basically started walking in the direction He chose and yet after many years for many of us an actual destination seems so elusive. We know we are not walking in circles. We know we are not lost. We know heaven is our final home. But what then? Let me share a small piece of my story... I have been walking with Him over 33 years. Quite often when I thought we had arrived at our destination I was saddened only to find out we were just resting somewhere.In each place I had met new people, made friends, shared meals and their homes. I adopted each child as my own for the moment. Their pets became my friends and so much more and yet each time somewhere in the midst of all this I would hear Him call my name and say, it's time to go. My struggle to connect and become attached to each person I encountered became a fierce battle within me. Who likes saying goodbye as a lifestyle? And it was not until some years later while on this journey that I asked Him, Lord how do you connect with so many people and yet continue moving about like this? Doesn't it break your heart each time you say goodbye? He just smiled as He knew the seriousness of my question and yet His answer was simple and profound.
My child when you accepted Me into your life we set forth on a marvelous adventure, an incredible journey together. We have been many places, seen many things and have met myriads of people have we not? My child you have been searching for a place and I have been searching for hearts. You thought the destination was a place for you to settle, for your comfort and stability but I have been trying to teach you people are your destination.
Take your eyes off of self and look into the eyes of those who are in front of you. Do you see them? Can you speak to them, minister to their need somehow? If you can do this my child then you shall have ventured into regions and domains that most mortals do not go. My Father did not send Me here to settle down in a specific region or to call a certain place home, heaven is my home. Heaven is your home.
My child our wanderings have not been in vain. Each person we have encountered, each heart we have entered into, we have been home, if even for a moment. In this life I will give you sure friends who you can visit over and over again. That's why people connect with each other, so if not just for a mere moment we can feel like we are home.
Enjoy the journey
