Homesick

Today is my anniversary. I am so thankful to have been blessed with not only the best husband a girl could ask for but also my very best friend. We shared more love in our time together than most people have in twice as many years. I love him and miss him terribly but I have God’s promise of eternity with him. I am truly blessed. If you’ve lost a loved one, may the video below bless you as it has me.

“Homesick”

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.

If you are missing someone, hold on to Jesus. His grace is sufficient for each day.
