Go the Distance.

I have often dreamed of a far off place
Where a hero’s welcome would be waiting for me.
Where the crowds will cheer when they see my face
And a voice keeps saying, “This is where I’m meant to be.”

I’ll be there someday, I can go the distance
I will find my way if I can be strong.
I know every mile will be worth my while
When I go the distance, I’ll be right where I belong.

(David Zippel, 1997)

Reflection. Heaven! Almighty God’s eternal dwelling place. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Ultimately our future Home.

Scripture Reading: Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to Myself, that where I am you may be also. (John 14:1–3, ESV)

What does the Holy Word of God teach us of our future Heavenly Home? For all faithful believers our future glorious destination and our final goal. Life is a journey of faithful obedience…
