Going Home

Advent – Season of Hope

We’ve been told we can’t go home again, that nothing stays the same. Our home is not like the cottage in the snow globe–that glass ball that “snows” when we shake it. No matter how often we shake the globe, the charming home never changes. But our physical home changes. The people who inhabit that home change, grow older, move on.

Nothing remains static, however, the paradox persists: the more something changes, the more it remains the same. As I change and grow–often because of pain and heartache–I become more fully the unique person God created me to be. And when I become more fully the “me” that God envisions, I am never far from home.

From all the lands to which I banished them; they shall again live on their own land.  Jeremiah 23:8
