John 14:3 I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

If you are like me, the thought has crossed your mind. “Any time, Lord; you can come back any time.” The longing to be with Jesus is natural for a Christian all the time, and it can intensify in challenging times.

Until our last day on this earth comes, in God’s perfect time, we know that we are still here because our Lord has work for us to do. And the promise of an eternal future with our Savior gives meaning to this life and confidence along the way. Until his promise becomes your reality, take heart!
