If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 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.

Hebrews 11:15-16

It seems rather odd to think Almighty God
Of you and me –
Who, inching onwards, keep glancing backward,
To where we used to be.

Yet, it’s those who set their sights,
Their hearts delight,
In Heaven, the city above.
God is their God, Of them He is called
Unashamed –
For such are a people he loves.
