I was listening to some Rich Mullins songs this morning while doing some work around the house.

One of my new favorites is “If I Stand.” The chorus says this:

So if I stand let me stand on the promise 
That you will pull me through 
And if I can’t, let me fall on the grace 
That first brought me to You 
And if I sing let me sing for the joy 
That has born in me these songs 
And if I weep let it be as a man 
Who is longing for his home

I like especially like the last two lines.

Somedays…I don’t miss home. I’m LONGING for it, because I know THIS is not it.
