Living Here, But Longing for Heaven

He has put eternity into man’s heart. Ecclesiastes 3:11

There is something deep within us – placed there by our creator – that knows we were made for more than all of this. We know there is more to life than what we see with our eyes and touch with our fingers. We look around us and think, “Surely there is more to life.”

And there is, dear friend.

Someone posted a quote today that said, “Stress is caused by being here but wanting to be there.”

Isn’t that just perfect?

All of my angst and anxiety, frustration and tension – it all stems from living here and longing for there. We experience earth but are all too aware that eternity exists.

We know that nothing is as it should be and we long for all to be made right. And it will be some day.

He has put eternity into man’s heart.

He has given his people a holy restlessness to remind us that we are based on earth but we belong in heaven.
