"Homesick"

This song has been on the radio for as long as I remember, but when I heard it the day after Rebecca went to be with Jesus, I finally understood it. 

"Homesick" by Mercyme

"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

And 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
Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now"



I am so thankful for the promise of Heaven. I am so thankful that I will see Rebecca again. I am so thankful that she is safe in the arms of Jesus. I am so thankful that Jesus conquered death and that death has NO sting anymore! I really don't know how people get through this without God. He is what gets us through another minute. He carries us and sustains us. I'm so thankful for that. But it is so hard that she isn't here. Harder than I imagined. So I am clinging to God's promises more than ever.

"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful." Hebrews 10:23

"Let's keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word" Hebrews 10:23 (Message)
