a place for me

April 4, 2012 6:00 am

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.

My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me.” (John 14:1-3)

So even though You went Your most difficult way without me, You are coming back to pick me up. You know I won’t manage on my own, even though I sometimes tend to think that “perfect” means “self-sufficient”. But You meant perfection otherwise: it’s being in a relation, dependent on others, loving.

So when You take me to be with You – when You help me with this toughest removal in my life – You will ask me with childlike simplicity: “That’s what My place is like. Do you like the room I’ve prepared for you?”

Just please, do watch over me, so that I wouldn’t get lost somewhere on the way.
