I am not home

There is a song by a Christian group called Building429. The song is called “Where I Belong” and I love singing with it on my way to or from tradeshows every weekend. My favorite verse is “I’m not home yet”.

This song is upbeat and fun. It reminds me no matter what kind of day I’ve had, I’m not home yet. Of course, in the song, home is heaven symbolically, but in my daily life, home is where the heart is. My loving husband and adoring dogs are my home. It is where I feel most loved and welcome.

But there is a sentence in this song right after not being home that states: “take this world and give it to Jesus” and personally I have to ask why??

If we are all home, why would Jesus want to be here?

So here’s a video of the song and I’ll even put the lyrics below just in case you want to sing along.

Enjoy!

Lyrics

Where I Belong
By Building 429

Sometimes it feels like I’m watching from the outside
Sometimes it feels like I’m breathing but am I alive
I will keep searching for answers that aren’t here to find

All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong

So when the walls come falling down on me
And when I’m lost in the current of a raging sea
I have this blessed assurance holding me.

All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong

When the earth shakes I wanna be found in You
When the lights fade I wanna be found in You

All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong

All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong

Where I belong, where I belong
Where I belong, where I belong

Addendum….

Um…. Oops. I’ve been singing it wrong all this time. It’s not “give it to Jesus” it’s “give me Jesus”….
Well that makes a lot more sense. Ha!

Feeling silly.
