I’m coming home. Tell the world. Let the rain wash away. All the pain of yesterday. Although my kingdom awaits. And they have forgiven my mistakes. I’m coming home. Tell the world. I’m coming home……I am back where I belong.
Darkness……black….. lights off and then the anticipation.
Bright Lights. Cheering. The feeling of confidence. The belief. The desire to win. The excitement. The energy. Your heart is pounding. You want to be there. You want to be a part of it……you belong here……not in the darkness….. this is your home………………..
Is this Heaven? No. Just a Baylor Football game. But a pretty awesome one!
Surrounded by 48,000 fans…..not just fans………..but Baylor Fans………..watching the introduction video of the Baylor Game made me think, is this what Heaven is like? This feeling? No! It’s even better!!! When our loved ones enter, does the light shine so bright they can’t compare it to anything? Is all their pain of yesterday gone? Are there fans all around cheering them on? 48,000? Or a billion or more!? Imagine fireworks, heart pounding….excitement….
This holiday for those of you who have lost….I hope you can close your eyes and imagine that moment. That moment where your loved one went from a place they did not belong…..death…. to a place they did….life.
Now, we who are left experience death to a realm that we never imaged. We have hope. We have faith. It’s not done. It did not end that day……but instead started when they were called home.
We Pray for a peace for those who have lost. Pray for those with no hope in their darkness that this is not the end. There is bigger and better that awaits us. Today live for it. Fight for it. Cheer for it. Because in the end it’s worth it.
Taking Steps of Faith,
