Moving means so many things. A fresh start. A new safe place. Snakes and alligators… hahaha Since last Summer my family has been on such a journey. We have been through two temporary housing situations and gone through so much with family and outside issues.
A huge thing I have learned over the past year is that life feels even more chaotic when I don’t have a permanent home to lean back on. Moving several times has added to a lot of other things I’ve been dealing with. With that being said, God has been teaching me to make my home in Him.
He is security, safety, protection. He is unchanging and never-failing. When everything around me is constantly moving and evolving, I can be rooted in my relationship with Him. I can be planted in my family, in my people, to encourage one another and draw near to each other. Home is like the church, it is not a place, but a state of being.
Thankful I have a forever home. I hope and pray that my desire for God will only deepen and my longing for eternity will increase so that my soul won’t be tied to the “stuff” of this world, because one day it will all disappear instantly when Christ returns.
And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
