Tragically, she had lost three of them in a fire.

When people asked her how many children she had, she always responded, “I have five children; three are living and two are here on earth!”

This woman had walked through unimaginable grief, but had arrived at a place where she had a much deeper trust than most of us as to where HOME was.


She had placed all her trust on the promises of the One guiding us home.

Her tragedy had solidified the vision of her life journey. She knew her life was a long journey to a far off home and that where we are now is not ultimately home.

So Much to Learn from Her

We have much to learn from her, don’t we?

Your journey is going to be very bumpy and scary, but our true home is just over the horizon. We have Someone watching over us, guiding us there.

You will encounter all kinds of trials that will test you to the core.

Along your journey, you are going to continually hear a whisper that you are an orphan, homeless and alone.

Let’s look to the persecuted, though. They, above all, have learned how to trust Jesus in the dark and they have buried His words in their heart:

“Child, I have to leave you for just a bit, so don’t be scared. The evil one will whisper to you that you are an orphan, but don’t believe it!”

“I have to leave to prepare your true home that you have longed for.”

“What is coming is beyond what you can conceive presently. Trust me, you cannot even imagine what you are going to experience in just a bit of time.”

“When you see me next, you will truly see me and experience me in a way you never could have while here on earth.”

“Trust me. . . I love you!”
