(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, I 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,I 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 goodbye; 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.)

this song brought such truth into my life this weekend. I couldn't help but share it with you. I've been listening to Mercy Me nonstop in my car this week, and somehow this song just keeps getting played.. and though it makes me cry - because I really am homesick - it gives me a peace because I know God has a plan and He will not leave me here. It's amazing how when you stop allowing yourself to only see a situation as painful and stupid, and allow it to be a time of growth and learning how easier things become. I still hurt, things still don't make sense, but they don't have to because I am safe in HIS arms and that is all I need to know...
