Homesick for Heaven

"I designed you to desire Me... the tugs of divinity (are) within you. I made you in My Image, and I hid heaven in your heart. Your yearning for Me is a form of homesickness: longing for your true home in heaven." (211)
Years ago, during a bible study on heaven, a lawyer's wife said that her life was so good, things were going so well, she was so happy that, honestly, she wasn't really looking forward to heaven that much. She assured us that she also did not want the alternative option either, hell! She was totally happy for her life to stay just like it was. Her comments certainly turned our discussion a whole different direction!
We discussed... what were the things that caused us to look forward to heaven? As we answered that question...we recognized that if we get too comfortable, we can often get too distracted with earthly, material blessings and miss the significance of the eternal things!
While I am grateful for the blessings I experience in my daily life... I never want to loose my deep hunger for heaven.
Feeling the "tugs of divinity" deep in my heart...dmc

  1. I dream of the day I can spend my days in pure worship and adoration. I dream of singing with heavenly angels and resting in the arms of our loving father. The idea that this piece of heaven is actually planted deep within my heart brings me so much joy and hope. This world is fleeting. It's problems are fleeting. Heaven is real. Heaven waits for us. We carry a small piece of it within us to assure our return when our time on this earth if finished. Heaven lives within me. God dwells within me. I am a divine spirit and someday, God will call me home again. Untiil then, I will try to be a reflection of his love here on earth.
