THIS IS MY JOY

AND MY GREAT REJOICING

A Better Country

I stumbled on this scripture this morning and knew it was just the right one to memorize for this week's experience of doing better. But it requires some thought.

It is from Hebrews 11 ––one of my most favorite chapters in the New Testament.  A chapter of heroes.  Verses about people who accomplished great things by faith.

These heroes had something in common.

Desire.

This chapter speaks of a city whose builder and maker is God.

A country that is heavenly. A place to dwell. A place filled with heaven.

I find myself desiring to find that place.

As I considered that desire, I realized that when we are filled with the Spirit and when our home is filled with the Spirit it becomes a BETTER place.

A heavenly place.

It's a simple thought.  But it motivates me to want to do better.
