Believers, we are going "to the Father." Much of our new home is still unclear to us, but two things are certain. Our "Father's house" is our home. And it is in the presence of the Lord. We are travelers and not permanent residents of this world. (R.C. Gillie)

Father, at times I feel like I'm finished. I'm just done and can't take anymore. You know my limits and the depth I can withstand. Help me to remember there is a final depth to this sinking process, and You are always within reach.
