8We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.
This is so true Lord. I would miss my family and friends, but I am so tired of this life and want to go have so bad. I really want to be rid of this body with its temptations and problems. This world surrounds me daily with awfulness and death. I myself live a life a mediocrity and sin. To go home would be so awesome. And it isn’t just the thought of heaven, it truly is a desire in my heart for “home” and a knowing that this is not “home” at all. But Lord, I do want to thank-you for this life. While it is a far cry from home, You have been good to me and given me wonderful people to be around. Help me spread Your joy and love. Help me Lord. *2Corinthians5*
