This Is Home

March has been an intense month. A lot has happened, and I have a lot to process. I can't help but wonder if I'll look back on this month as a milestone, or perhaps a springboard, into what God has planned for me.

Following up to yesterday's post, "This Is Home" by Switchfoot has been running through my head lately.

I’ve got my memories
Always inside of me
But I can't go back, back to how it was
I believe You now
I've come too far
No I can't go back, back to how it was

Created for a place I've never known

This is home
Now I'm finally where I belong, where I belong
Yeah this is home, I've been searching for a place of my own,
Now I found it, maybe this is home
Yes this is home

Belief over misery
I seen the enemy
And I wont go back, back to how it was
And I got my heart set on what happens next
I got my eyes wide, it's not over yet
We are miracles, and we're not alone

And now, after all my searching
After all my questions
I'm going to call it home
I got a brand new mind set
I can finally see the sunset
I'm gonna call it home

Hebrews 11: 10, 13-14
Abraham did it by keeping his eye on an unseen City with real, eternal foundations — the City designed and built by God. Each one of these people of faith died not yet having in hand what was promised, but still believing. How did they do it? They saw it way off in the distance, waved their greeting, and accepted the fact that they were transients in this world. People who live this way make it plain that they are looking for their true Home.

Or as my friend Will Netherland sings: "I live for a City of unordinary people. I live for a City where the servants are the served. I live for a City of unashamed freedom. I live for a City where the tears are no more."
