Homesick

Living in the world, but not of it,
no wonder we feel odd!
we're of a different spirit,
in the kingdom of God.

Our gloves no longer fit,
we've outgrown our shoes,
transformed in Christ Jesus
here to spread the good news!

Tho we're homesick for heaven,
we obey God's commission,
strangers passing through
like aliens on a mission!

So be not surprised
when there's no warm reception;
our Lord wasn't welcome
in a world of deception!

Work out your own salvation
on this foreign shore,
knowing Christ will return
and reign forevermore!

John 15:18-25  "The people of the world will hate you because you belong to Me!   For they don't know God who sent Me."

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
