Living Abroad


Living abroad!

Quite glamorous!  Wouldn’t you agree?

Just imagine all of the exotic senses that would allure and entice you to emerge and commune with the unknown!  Jetting off each untold day, whether by foot or a fancy fueled to explore the unfamiliar land!  Covering the tiniest off beat crevices of this world, to the extreme, lush heights to the deepest blue depths!

The coveted visions you’d be granted of umbrella dotted rivieras, colorful, cascading cliffs and convertible coasts!

What it would feel like, to softly step foot into museums, monuments and cathedrals that you’ve only dreamt of!

To wander the secluded, romantic cobblestone streets, that quietly whisper their history to you as they accompany and introduce you to a welcoming sidewalk cafe.

Listen closely, hear the locals, the languages and the laughter erupting with culture!

Sit for awhile, sip the espresso, drink the wine!  Indulge for just a bit!

I think it’s truthful to say we tend to believe this idea of living abroad is reserved for the privileged, the rich and the famous of the world.



You my  foreign friend are indeed living abroad!  You are not at home.

As a believer in Jesus Christ you are an official citizen of The Kingdom of Heaven!  You are a temporary resident here on earth.  (Philippians 3:20)

When accepting Jesus into your heart as your Lord and Savior you are given proof of this royal citizenship.  The bible says your proof, your key of entrance of identity and heritage is a gift placed within you as a believer.  The Holy Spirit Himself.  (Ephesians 1:14)

Think of Him as your Passport in life if you will!

Having this realization of your temporal life here on earth, may help you approach each new day with a fresh and eternal perspective!

Get out and explore the land! Taste the food!  Get to know the people!  Engage with someone new today!  Smile, wave, listen, help fill a need!  Turn up the music and dance! Take the time to create something new!  Write, cook, sing, sculpt, paint!  Forgive and give more!  Choose love every time!  Always believe!  And by all means, enjoy yourself while you have the opportunity!  

Know that your time here is short.  And what you do with the time is crucial!

Which ever divine purpose has been placed on your heart; the project, the person, the mission, the conversation, the action, the one that keeps coming to mind –  yes!  That one!  Don’t delay it any longer!


Each one of us upon our arrival home, will sit before the Throne of God and give an account of our life spent here on earth and will receive accordingly.  (2 Corinthians 5:10)

Our time, attention, motive, purpose and achievements while here in the body should be presented as an intentional gift that we can proudly and humbly present to our King!  A beautiful, genuine, well thought out offering of thanks that benefited not merely ourselves but The Kingdom of Heaven as well!  

A life well lived, while living abroad!  

Ask yourself, what will your offering be when you get home?  What will you say of your time spent here on earth?

So then, we are always full of good and hopeful and confident courage;  we know that while we are at home in the body, we are abroad from the home with the Lord [that is promised us].   2 Corinthians 5:6
