On a cloudy day, while my husband was driving through the countryside, I looked up and saw dark clouds heading our way. In the midst of the clouds, a small hole appeared showing a bit of blue sky.
The scene reminded me of a hope I have in my heart ~ the day when Jesus returns. One of many Scriptures came to mind …
“People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” Luke 21:26-28
Indeed, we live in a world where talk of beheadings, Ebola, starvation, homelessness and the like flood the TV news.
But I have this hope. And one day I believe that I will see Jesus coming in a cloud just as He predicted. And yes, my head will be lifted high because I’ll finally be — GOING HOME!
