 Hebrews 11 : 13-16 Keep your eyes on the goal

I read in Hebrews 11 13-15 of those who follow the Lord while all the time having their minds on what is to come,

13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth. 14 People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. 15 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.

If you feel like a stranger here on earth, like a square peg in a round hole, or you feel detached from the things of the world to the point where you know others view you as weird or not much fun to hang around with. Take heart and look up. You don't belong here and as the scripture says, ''people who admit they are strangers and foreigners on earth'' because they actually feel that way and experience it, you have a place in heaven prepared for you by God.
