Take this world and give me Jesus...

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!

This is a line from a Christian song that my kids and I love to hear come on the radio. We all sing along...

Tonight, on the way home from church, we had separate cars because of family members needing to be too many places...Hubby came home directly after church, I stayed and brought the kids home. And this song came on the radio and once again, we all sang along. But tonight was different...

Tonight God said to me, clearly and directly, that I'm not home, I don't *belong* here, I am not to be comfortable here on earth. That confirmed what was so very clearly evident at work today as I struggled and fought and got angry and cried and I was not comfortable. It was honestly a hell of a day.

So, I have to get used to not being comfortable, and it isn't easy - round peg in a square hole or perhaps vice versa...I honestly pray to go home, take this world and give me Jesus...

    No, this isn't our home. We are merely strangers here, pilgrims on a journey.

    You probably feel like a square peg trying to fit into a round hole (or whatever it is) because you try to live your life on God's standards whereas a lot of the folks around you are basing their lives on worldly standards. "Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God" as it says in James 4. So there's that conflict always present.

    I'm so sorry you had a horrible day at work. By now I'm hoping your peace has been restored as have your joy.

    I love you, KareBear. Keep the faith...and when you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on even longer!

    Sorry about the tough day but remember you have great friends and family. Even if this isn't where you want to be it's where you are and as my father always said - "It may not be your fault to be where you are but it is always your responsibility to move on from where you are"

    Keep the faith!! You'll be fine.

    I was totally drawn in by your title because it reminded me of an old hymn " I must have Jesus". So sorry that work was so awful but glad that God spoke to you in the midst. Hugs, Heather emoticon

    May the Peace of the Lord be with you, and comfort you as you go into the next day at work and each step you take.

    I repeat this partial scripture to myself ALL THE TIME ... "... in all things, give thanks". When I don't understand, I repeat it. When people don't understand or accept me, I repeat it. When circumstances are not what I think, want or wish they were, I repeat it. Forward progress is never made through the good times, nope ... it's made only when we have to dig down and exist on faith. We aren't meant to fit here because we have the blessed assurance that our Father is preparing mansions of Glory for us ... and our trials here are meant to mold us and shape us into being the children of God!

    I am hugging you from here as I know today will bring it's own struggles, trials and triumphs. In all things, give thanks ... Love you! emoticon emoticon

    So very sorry your work is hell :(( The questions you must ask yourself, do you need this job? Can you find another? If its at all possible to get out of there, can you? This does not sound like a very healthy situation. Stress leads to all kinds of problems :((
    Thinking of you and hoping it will get better..

    I completely understand you sis. This is not our home and I too can't wait to go home. But, there is still work to be done.

    I will pray for you!
