If we limit our story to the days between our birth and death, we will have to prepare ourselves for a sad ending. But we were made for something more than this earthly life, our story is integrated with God’s. We have to search and yearn for the heavens, in the same way that sailors search for the shoreline, or pilots search for the runway, or missiles search for a source of heat. We have to go home as doves go to their dovecote, or as a lost son arose and sought his father. God put the desire for a home in our hearts…And we have to navigate until we reach it.
