As a child, I can recall laying on my back looking up at the stars and thinking about how big the universe is. You can't help it, when you take the time to stop and look, that sky is big and huge and opens the door to a lot of questions.
When we were kids, we had the movie ET which opened even more discussion about the cosmos. And that is a a question that a lot of people ask- are there are Aliens out there? Extra Terrestrial life forms that are not of this world?
According to this article that you can read here one in five people believe that there are Aliens and that they walk among us disguised as humans.
I've been waiting to come clean about this for a while. I am not only one of those people who believe in Aliens that walk among us. I am actually an Alien that is disguised as a human.
This world is not my home. I am merely passing through. There is a place in heaven prepared for me to live for eternity. That's where I'm going to be forever.
It gives me a different perspective. The things I do and the things that I have in this world are temporary. Its kind of like being on vacation at a nice resort. You like the stuff and the place, but you don't own it, you're merely using it for a time while you're there.
I think its difficult when we live with a mindset that this world is our home. It can consume us as we try to amass stuff and accomplish things. We can actually begin to think that this world is all that there is, and nothing else.
Do you get too caught up in the here and now? Do you spend too much time focusing on what you can get from this world? God has prepared a place for you in Heaven that will be yours for eternity. You don't need to be worried about it.
Think about that today. As you're bogged down with details, and frustrations of the day remind yourself that this world is not your home. If you believe in Jesus, you will not be spending eternity here. You will be spending eternity in heaven in the place that is prepared for you.
Remember, you're an Alien!!!
