When will I get there?

"The reality is that ... there is no promised land until the Promised Land of the real heaven. We always think things will finally be . . . well, final when we get 'there,' wherever 'there' is for us. But there is no there. There’s only here. Because once you get there, there becomes here, and there’s a new there. On and on it will go until our discontentment with ourselves is shaped by the contentment found in Christ and our yearning for this-worldly 'theres' is conquered by the vision of the everlasting 'there.'”

-- Jared C. Wilson
