The Unfinished Playhouse

When I was a little girl, my dad was in the process of building me an outdoor playhouse. However, before it was ever built, he and my mom divorced, and he moved away.

The unfinished playhouse was later torn down.

Sometimes, we have things in our lives that are unfinished that hang around in the back of our minds. This is true, I think, especially for people who have a “completer” personality. Unfinished projects are things I just hate.

When I bring something home, like a plant, I have to put it in the ground the day I bring it home.

Jesus said:

Don’t let your heart be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if not, I would have told you. I am going away to prepare a place for you. If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to myself, so that where I am you may be also. (John 14: 1-3 CEB)

He is preparing a room for us.

We may sing about mansions on a hilltop, but it’s not there in the Bible. We won’t be living by ourselves in a big mansion. We will be living in the same place as Jesus. We will have a place with him.

There won’t be incomplete rooms, loneliness, unfulfilled things that just never got completed there.

There will be rooms there, and we can go there to be with Jesus in His Father’s house.

Did you notice that there are “many rooms?” So, there’s room for you, too.

And don’t be disappointed if you wanted a mansion. I’m sure a room in God’s house will be a lot fancier than some mansion on a hilltop.

If you would like to learn more about the Bible, sign up at Bible & English Lessons or you could go to World Bible School. The first link is for learning English using the Bible as text. The second one is based solely on the Bible.

Note: I’m one of the volunteer teachers at World English Institute, but I do not currently teach with World Bible School, although I have in the past.
