Sometimes at night while driving on a quiet road, I look up to the sky and questions pass through my mind.

Why am I here on earth?
What’s the purpose of my existence?
Why am I trying so hard in this life, what will I gain from it?

Have you ever felt tired sometime in life. You want to stop everything and go home. A real home where our Father lives. We are longing for our Heavenly Father.

Hebrews 11:16
Instead, they were longing for a better country–a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.

When we look at what surrounds us, the world we live in. The fast paced life, the competition to survive. The cruelness of the world. Money, power, suffering, illness, sadness all come together and make this world an unhappy place to dwell. There’s no love and peace in this world. There’s so much hate & mockery and there’s nothing we can do about it. But instead we have to wait for a little while longer because God will never forget his promise to us.

Revelation 3:10
Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.

Revelation 6:10
They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?

I don’t belong here. There’s nothing this world can offer that will satisfy. The world and all its glory will vanish. So why bother to seek something which at the end will disappear?

I am a traveler, and I am just stopping here for a while until my time comes. My purpose here on this earth is to do the WILL of My Father, do the work He asks me to do, to love one another and ultimately come home to my Father’s home where everything has been prepared for me.

John 14:2
In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?

Where I Belong
• Songwriters: Jason Ingram, Jason David Roy

 

Sometimes it feels like I’m watching
From the outside
Sometimes it feels like I’m breathing
But am I alive?I won’t keep searching for answers
That aren’t here to find
All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong

So when the walls come falling
Down on me
And when I’m lost in the current
Of a raging sea

I have this blessed assurance
Holding me

All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong

When the earth shakes
I wanna be found in You
When the lights dim
I wanna be found in You

All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong

All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong

Where I belong, where I belong
Where I belong, where I belong
