This world is not my home
I’m just a passing through
Just a wayfaring man
Just a passing through.
For my pathway
So that I might walk through this life
In God’s perfect plan for me.
I am just passing through
A sojourner here
This World is not my home
I’m just passing through.
Don’t want to borrow trouble
No if, and, or buts about tomorrow
Walking on, one day at a time
We have just celebrated the passing of the old and the beginning of a New Year.
As more and more of my alloted time on earth Earth passes I realize that this World is not my home, that I am truly a wayfaring man, a sojourner; and that I am just passing through.
One of my favorite verses in the Bible is:
"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you" Unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also" (John,14:1-3 KJV).
