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.Â Â At that time they will see the Son of ManÂ coming in a cloudÂ with power and great glory.Â When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.â€ 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!
