Wanderlust: a strong innate impulse or desire to travel the world.
I have always had this childish dream of one day traveling the world and visiting many different countries. This sense of restless wanderlust is continually with me. I have never quite understood why I constantly want to go somewhere new and be somewhere different. It is almost like my heart is longing to find a place where I can be at peace.
I came across a quote that I feel summarizes these feelings into one sentence: “The fact that our heart yearns for something Earth can’t supply is proof that Heaven must be our home.” -C.S. Lewis
This earth is not my home. The only place that will truly quiet my heart’s desire is in the arms of Jesus. It is fine to enjoy the blessings that God has given me, but I must first remember Who the blessings came from. I must remember that all good things come from my heavenly Father (: I cannot waste my life searching for things to “satisfy” my soul when I have already found Him! He will continually be with me and will fulfill EVERY need I could possibly have. I will always have a little bit of wanderlust inside of me, but as a Christian I know that this world can’t compare to what lies ahead. My heart longs for the day when I see My Savior face to face! Until then, I will enjoy this world that He has made for me. I will travel the globe and stand in awe of the mighty works of His hand. I will see a little more of His beauty everyday through His creation. But most importantly, I will eagerly await the day when I will spend eternity in heaven and be filled with everlasting peace and joy!
“Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, Prone to leave the God I love; Here’s my heart, O take and seal it, Seal it for Thy courts above.”
