Nearing Home

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. When I was a kid, my family enjoyed Sunday afternoon road trips. Daddy would drive out to a country lane we had never traveled on, and oh my goodness, we were on an adventure, seeing places I had never seen. Still, as wonderful as these trips were, when we headed back and neared our house, my sisters and I would chime, “We’re almost home!” I’d be thinking about kicking off my shoes and getting ready for the pot roast that mom had started that morning. Nothing is better than walking through your front door after you’ve been away. And it’s going to feel that way when we cross the threshold into heaven.  Colossians chapter 3 tells us then, to set our eyes on it. Earth is no more than the title page of a far more beautiful story that will begin in heaven. Today, may you draw courage from the fact that your glorious home is right around the corner.
