Yesterday I went to the DMV to get my car registered and the license plates for it. Fortunately the line was not long and I did not need to stand in line very long. After almost four weeks, my car is no longer In Transit. That term In Transit makes me think about this life.
For as long as I am in this life, I am In Transit myself. This is not my permanent home. Hebrews 11:13-16 says:
All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth. People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.
So this life is temporary. I am glad it is temporary. I would not want an eternity of living with pain, living with the problems of this world. There is an eternal home waiting for me.
Just as while my car was In Transit I gladly gave people a ride, my hope is to bring people with me to my eternal home-heaven. The only reason I am still here in this life is to share the love of Jesus and the wonderful message of salvation in Jesus, so others can have a blessed eternal future.
The road of this life might get bumpy, there will be times of driving through adverse weather, but hop on in the In Transit vehicle knowing Jesus is steering it and is always with us.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

Thank you little sister. How was your weekend?
It was alright, we’ve been busy replacing windows on our house and that project is finally winding down so we’ll have more free time!!
Are you doing the work? I am trying to picture you on a ladder
Lol I’ve been helping, yes!! One of our ladders is a bit unstable so it’s surprising we haven’t broke a leg!!
Why is it that I worry about you on a ladder?
Lol rightfully so!! I’m a bit clumsy!! Btw we traded out the flimsy ladder the other day for a more sturdy one from Nate’s parents so yay for that!!
Nate can do the ladder stuff and you stay on the ground 🙂
I’m glad this life is temporary too!
I am glad we can spend eternity together in heaven little sister with the millions of other souls saved by Jesus 🙂
Such is life, it’s been a while here.

It is amazing what you can accomplish for Jesus, on our short time on earth. Blessings!
