And Just One More Thing...

this longing for home is never (and should never) be totally absent from our lives. bc we weren't just created for this life here on earth...we were created for eternity in Heaven. and until we are there, we will always feel a little bit out of place. we can have wonderful and deep experiences with God Himself, but it isn't the complete real thing. we can feel His power and be filled with His Spirit...but it's still only a glimpse of WHO HE REALLY IS.

I have climbed highest mountain
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you Only to be with you

I have run I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire This burning desire
I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one Bleed into one
Well yes I'm still running
You broke the bonds and you Loosed the chains
Carried the cross Of my shame Of my shame
You know I believed it

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
lyric by bono

i used to hate this song...i would scoff at the lyrics..."see" i would say, "if he were really a christian he would know he's found what he's looking for"...

pretty judgemental on my part. i understand him a bit more now...

i love Jesus. i'm ever grateful for His love and His grace. i could never live a normal life without following Him. He's everything to's true, cliche'd or not.

but, my experience with Him here on earth pales in comparison to what it will be.


so, sometimes it's ok to be homesick.

These last few blogs have begun to open a window for me. I love God with all my heart but still couldn't figure what I was doing wrong. I still feel dissatisfied and often lost but not unbelieving I know that God is real and know that He has a purpose for me but still feel like I'm in a fog.Ultimately, thanks for blowing a little wind my way to clear the fog, some.
