My Home...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I have a habit I do on SONdays.

Being our Lord's Day, I will go to Bible study with my church family.  And worship with them, afterwards.

Although we worship in spirit and truth, and through music, there is a song that I have never heard during a worship service.

It is by Jim Reeves and is entitled, This World Is Not My Home.  Here is a link so you can listen to it:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4rKhOb-J0A.  The lyrics are below.

This World Is Not My Home

This world is not my home
I'm just a-passing through
My treasures are laid up
Somewhere beyond the blue.

The angels beckon me
From heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home
In this world anymore.

Oh Lord, you know
I have no friend like you
If heaven's not my home
Then Lord what will I do.

The angels beckon me
From heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home
In this world anymore.

I have a loving mother
Just over in Glory land
And I don't expect to stop
Until I shake her hand.

She's waiting now for me
In heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home
In this world anymore.

Oh Lord, you know
I have no friend like you
If heaven's not my home
Then Lord what will I do.

The angels beckon me
From heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home
In this world anymore.

Just over in Glory land
We'll live eternally
The saints on every hand
Are shouting victory.

Their songs of sweetest praise
Drift back from heaven's shore
And I can't feel at home
In this world anymore.

Oh Lord, you know
I have no friend like you
If heaven's not my home
Then Lord what will I do.

The angels beckon me
From heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home
In this world anymore... 


Just as we read/hear in this song's lyrics, I believe I am just passing through this world.

This life, is not what God has in store for me, eternally.  Nor, for you.

I have no friend, like Him.  He is the only one who truly loves me.

So, when my life ends I will join Him, in Heaven.

Just as we read, Jesus said in John 14:1-3, "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."

He is preparing a place for me.  A place, in Heaven. 

He told me so.  Just as He told you, as well... if you belong to Him.

He will come again, and receive me unto Him, so I can be with Him.

After all, He is the way, the truth and the life.  No man comes to the Father, but by Him.  Jesus.

If you are not yet trusting in/believing upon Him, you won't be saved. 

If you are, I'll see you in Heaven.  And we will be able to honour Him together, eternally.


Until next time...
