Today I’m going to introduce a NEW SONG that is hands-down my favorite song that God has stirred in me yet. It’s that precious to me! Even days after writing it, I was sharing it but that’s mostly because of the encounter that I had with God on my front porch one evening. The song stands as a vivid reminder of not only that moment but of what I truly believe God desires for His people in this hour: That we would come HOME to His heart. Fully and completely.
In John 14, Jesus was asked, “Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?” In verse 23 Jesus answered saying, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.”
Not only do I believe it’s possible for God to be our truest home this side of heaven, I believe it’s his plan for us. This is the brightest hope of our Gospel story…that we are reconciled to the Father’s arms in the here and now, because of Jesus!
I’m tagging those of you who heard me squawk out (through tears) this story and the very beginnings of this song, even when I was still just reading the lyrics from my journal. And thanks to those of you who said, “You have to keep the ‘screen door’ line in the bridge!” As I remember those moments I can’t help but think…how beautiful is the Body of Christ!? That we have each other and we’re all a part of this Home together.
May you find yourself further up and farther in, finding your truest home in His heart again today. I’ll talk to you soon!
