Building 429 sings a great song called, Where I Belong. It came to mind as I read John 14.
Jesus’ promises draw me; they entice me. They also encourage me. There is a constant tension between loving the people and the life I have on this earth and the yearning I have to experience the peace of abiding with Jesus without the entanglement of the flesh.
Don’t get me wrong, I know I belong to Christ and I am going to do my best while I’m here on earth to answer His call and be obedient to Him. But I am enormously grateful that I don’t have to do this by myself.
God knew I would need a Counselor…that we all would need a Counselor. I hope you find encouragement in that too – today and everyday.
I put a link to that song, by the way, in the show notes of the Lifting Her Voice podcast and on the Marketplace page . If you want to give it a listen, go ahead and use that link.
