Sojourning #4...more than enough room...

Processed to look like an old, tattered postcard, looked at often, as one would if they were far from home...

There is more than enough room in my Father’s home.... 
When everything is ready, I will come and get you, 
so that you will always be with me where I am...
John 14:2-3NLT

These were words spoken by Jesus to comfort His followers close to His crucifixion...
He was leaving them behind, citizens of another world being left in this one as aliens and sojourners.  They would face adversity, persecution, ostracization, beatings, imprisonment, execution...

But they had the hope that He wouldn't leave them forever - He would come back - and there would be room...
more than enough room, 
for them, 
their families, 
their friends, 
and all who wanted a new life. 

Thank you Lord for making all the room needed and for drawing all those who come...
