Take Me There

Hey I don't know about you but I can wait till the day
When I'll be with my Lord and everything is ok
And I'll be just like him so sin won't get in the way
Basking in his glory that's where I want to stay

A place where shadows give way to the real
And circumstances can't change the way that I feel
Joy in my Savior that Satan can't steal 
Because he's been defeated- yeah you know the deal

-Trip Lee "Take Me There"

I don't know about you but those lyrics are a cry of my heart. I cannot wait until the day that I get to see Jesus face to face and spend eternity praising His Holy name. This should be the way all Christians feel. This place is not our home. The Bible tells us that we are made for something far greater than this world. 

Where is your heart? Is it focused here or is it longing for something greater? As we grow in our understanding of Christ and what He did for us our longing will be to be with Him. Pray and beg God to change your focus from this world to the next!

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you will also appear with him in glory. Colossians 3:1-4
