…home is wherever you are.
This was the end of a beautiful love letter from my husband to me. I wondered...did he literally mean home was any place 'I' was, and not a physical home?
Over the years, I have come to better understand that home is where your heart is (given to).
What does home mean to you? Is it a place or a person? People long to be at home; your home is whatever place you long to be. Home is a place of rest, security….of love.
While reading the scrippys (His Word), I began to see that Jesus wants to make His home with us, in our hearts. He wants us to know His friendship and love so that no matter where we are, we will be at home! This takes place through our covenant (like a marriage) with Him.
Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey My teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them." John 14:23 NIV
Do you want to know Him? Open the door of your heart. He is one open door away :)
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. Revelation 3:20 NIV
