There the lessons have been learned and the victories thereof are great. There where past failures are merely milestones to success. There where the cares of this world are no longer a concern. There where the rewards of faith are definite and sure. I need to get there where the past has little meaning in the light of the present and is darker still in the gleam of the future. There where territories have been overtaken and new territories are being revealed. There where the righteous not only live by faith but are living by faith! There!
My heart yearns for there. Where patience has proven to be a virtue and hope is not left wanting. I must get there relinquishing what has kept me here. There, where I not only say, "I am a conqueror" but I am in fact, a conqueror! There where I not only sing the song of a survivor but I shout the words of the victorious and declare, "I am Victorious!" There, where His promises are realized! There, where the enemy is not just crippled but utterly defeated, there! What I am saying is I am no longer satisfied with here!! So, I keep moving; I keep taking steps; I keep feeling uncomfortable here; I keep pursuing Him and the place of my desire until I am no longer here but I am THERE!! And by faith, I will get there!!
