Topic: Song - Homesick by Mercy Me

I posted this song on Charlie's Caringbridge site.  I think it describes so well how we feel when our loved ones are gone.

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

Re: Song - Homesick by Mercy Me

Dear Carol, Mercy Me is one of my favorite christian groups I love to listen to when I need sometime for myself...the song you have posted is one that I believe I heard the story as to how the group wrote the song...a young man in his 20's was not a believer for all of his life..one night at his brother's, he gave his life to the Lord...on his way home, he was killed in a car accident...we never seem to understand the Lord's way...but I do know that what He knows of us...is much, much greater and better than what we tend to think is right for us...but my hope remains that as it gets closer to being the third month of my life without my beloved Lee, God IS giving me strength and my hope is one day I will be with him again.

Love,
Heather

Dear Carol, it's a beautiful song and easily made me cry.  I wish God would give me a message to give me some strength.

Dearest Sophie, the strength, I believe, is always there, its just that sometimes we don't need it as hard as other times. You also have strength in your wonderful daughter and niece. Not to mention we are all sending waves of strength out to you. I love it when I see you come on line. We are always thinking about you and sending prayers your way.
