Whenever I am away on a trip, and the time is approaching for it to be over; I’ve found there are two tendencies:
One is to suddenly find your heart ready to go home.
Two is to wish you didn’t have to leave.
It is the same with us. As we’ve traveled through God’s Word maybe now you find yourself longing to be with Him in the place we will one day call Home. This is the result of reading and absorbing the Bible. We realize the journey isn’t the end, but the destination to which it leads us – Heaven.
However, there have been wonderful trips where I didn’t want to come home! This was due in large part because of the ones with whom I was traveling. But it was also because the place I was vacationing was so beautiful.
Both are legitimate responses to a great trip. Maybe you’re in the second group and ended up throughout the year being caught up with other aspects of your life in God. You aren’t ready to stop because there is still so much you want to see! Or maybe you’re about to finish the goal and you’re wondering what’s next?
The good news is as long as God chooses for us to remain on this earth – we have another year! The road we travel next year will be the same – God’s Word…but I guarantee you the scenery will look differently; It always does!
So whether you’re finished or not – both are fine. God is faithfully leading us on the ancient road, and He alone will insure we see and enjoy all He has for us!
Can't wait to see what's around the next bend! Genie
