I am learning more and more each day that the goal of The Cross was not only for Jesus to meet you at the point of salvation, but to save you every time you need him to, every time you call.

2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJ
Although your hearts desire may seem out of reach, the Word of God reminds us that God is able to bring those things near. Let your faith be your bridge and the path you tread to get to your next place in him!
