H-Homesick

Apparently I don't know my alphabet very well... haha I totally skipped "H" Thank you friend for bringing that to my attention. It might be out of order but here it is, Homesick:



"You're in a better place, I've heard a thousand times
And at least a thousand times I've rejoiced for you
But the reason why I'm broken, the reason why I cry
Is how long must I wait to be with you

I close my eyes and I see your face

If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now


Help me Lord cause I don't understand your ways
The reason why I wonder if I'll ever know

But, even if you showed me, the hurt would be the same

Cause I'm still here so far away from home


I close my eyes and I see your face

If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now


In Christ, there are no goodbyes

And in Christ, there is no end
So I'll hold onto Jesus with all that
I have
To see you again To see you again"

This song is so special to me. Last year I was in Moab with some friends, but I was still lonely and hurting. I was looking out at the clouds and I couldn't help but think of this song. I sat there in the front seat and sketched clouds along with the words "If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place." Most of the time I'm okay staying here and waiting but sometimes it just feels like so much of heart is so far away.
