"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end." Ecclesiastes 3:11
Ever felt like you just didn't really belong somewhere? Like all but one of the puzzle pieces fit--something just didn't feel completely right? Maybe that's how we as believers are supposed to feel about our brief journey through this life. Maybe it will never feel totally like home.
Back in the 70's BJ Thomas had a beautiful song called "Home Where I Belong"--
They say that heaven's pretty, and livin' here is too
But if they'd say that I would have to choose between the two
I'd go home. I'd go home where I belong
Sometimes when I'm dreamin' it comes as no suprise
That if you look and see that homesick feelin' in my eyes
I'm goin' home--goin' home where I belong.
And while I'm here I'll serve Him gladly
And sing Him all these songs
I'm here--but not for long
When I'm feelin' lonely and when I'm feelin' blue
It's such a joy to know that I am only passin' through
I'm going home, going home where I belong
One day I'll be sleepin' when death knocks on my door
And I'll awake to find that I'm not homesick anymore
'Cause I'll be home, I'll be home where I belong.
Yeah. See you at home!
