A letter to Jesus –
It’s the best place to be because it’s where You want me.
And to be honest, there never is a There, because when I’m finally there, it will be a new Here.
A year ago, I never thought I’d be Here. Even if You’d told me, I’d have shaken my head and bombarded You with questions.
Like the questions I get from my son before bed. “What’s the plan for tomorrow? Where are we going? When are we leaving? Will it be fun? Will I know anyone?”
Some nights, I just don’t want to fill him in on every detail. And besides, if plans change, then I’ll just have a disappointed young man, and I’ll have a lot of explaining to do. Often, it’s easier to tell him:
“Wait and see. Trust me. It will be great.”
And I’m the same way.
The road can be bumpy. Narrow. Winding. Hard. Tears line the sides like guardrails.
But it’s splattered in laughter, joy, hugs, peace, and sunshine.
I’m so happy to be Here.
And as long as You’re with me, Here is the best place.
“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
