April 10. Another day that will forever be tattooed on my soul. On this day 2 years ago, I had to say goodbye to a country that changed my life. Today was the day I left Montego Bay, Jamaica after a week of doing God’s work. It was the day I had to come “home.”
Even though I technically made it back “home” to Detroit, I still felt homesick. In fact, I am still homesick to this day. The trip was just another reminder of Jesus’ words in John 18:36 where he said
“My Kingdom is not of this world.”
This world is not our home. For those of us who follow Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior may we be reminded that our residency is in Heaven. Let’s make sure that we never get too comfortable here on Earth.
