Ram Dass once said “We’re all just walking each other Home.”
Whoa. This is powerful & I’m not entirely sure why?
Lately, the concept of “home” has been so prominent in my heart. Where I am now – this place with this body – it’s temporary. It’s not my forever home. But what I’ve failed to recognize is that I’m not alone in that. We are ALL just fighting to survive. We ALL just want to make it through the day… and ultimately make it home.
My battle may be more physical and more public, but it is no more or no less than anyone else’s journey home.
We have to be more intentional.
We have to be MORE.
I want to run towards the throne hand in hand with the ones that I love. It’s not a race. This life is NOT a race. With the gift of salvation and the promise of eternity, we are all heading to the same great place, where we get to remain forever – whole, complete and perfect.
Thank you Jesus!!
In the meantime, we get to endure this worldly journey together. The beauty painted across this world, even in the darkest corners, is ours to drink in – straight from the hands of the Creator.
It’s a blessing and an honor to be on this journey Home with some of the Lord’s best.
No one walks alone. Jesus, we’re coming Home.
