You’ll Know Where to Find Me
John 14: 1-4
I knew you long ago
And I met up with you today.
You could always find me here
Without any delay.
I’m still at the same old place.
That’s where I’ll always be.
I’ve lived here all my life,
So that’s where you can find me.
But someday, if I’m not around,
Don’t worry, fret, or stew.
You’ll know my brand-new abode.
It’s in the Book, that I gave to you.
You see I’m in a place that’s best
For a permanent time.
It’s a place of eternal rest.
It’s wonderful and sublime.
My new address, far from you,
Is simply number 777.
You’ll know it,
On that golden street called Heaven.
— Charles B. Mayes

Sometimes we think that people can always be found at certain addresses if we want to contact them. But things change and people move. However, eventually, there is one place we know believers in Jesus Christ can always be found. The Bible tells us that Jesus has not only prepared a beautiful place for us, but He will also take us there!
I appreciate my followers and those who visit. May God richly bless each of you!
