I got in my car yesterday and heard this song on the radio. It was so fitting – the perfect reminder I needed for this next step.
I drove to a meeting where I signed a lot of papers… and bought a house. All the while, this song was echoing in my heart: “I’m not home yet. This is not where I belong. Take this world and give me Jesus. This is not where I belong…”
This place is just a [cute and cozy] house, and these walls are a place to be used. My simple prayer is this… I want it to be a loud beacon for this little house, all who live there and for my life. “Lord, I know I’m not home yet. This world is not where I belong. So take this step and give me Jesus. I’ll use this, and I’ll hold it loosely, because I know it’s not ultimately where I belong. Let this temporary dwelling be a ‘light on a hill’ reflecting your glory.”
