Home—not for sale
You can never be separated from your true dwelling place in divine Love.
Today many streets are peppered with the sign "House For Sale." The reasons for selling might be a change in income; a new job; a growing family. However, no one is selling his home —but a house.
What's the difference? A "house" is generally a material structure of wood or brick or stone. "Home" is a spiritual concept, which is not limited to any material structure. It is manifested in peace, joy, order—as well as many other qualities of God, divine Love.
In the book of Acts we read: "In him [God] we live, and move, and have our being." You can never sell or be separated from your true dwelling place any more than a ray of the sun can be separated from its source. And you don't have to wait until you move or find a particular kind of physical surroundings to experience your home. Right now, in truth, you are living in your permanent dwelling in God. His loving presence is what you live in today, you lived in yesterday, and will live in tomorrow. It's wherever you are. The Psalmist tells us in the ninety-first Psalm, "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." As we come to recognize our dwelling place in divine Love, we will increasingly experience the peace and safety we seek.
