I’m coming home

restless wandering around
emptiness creeps in and fills my soul
I’ve been away for years and wonder if
I can ever find my way back home?

will there still be open arms that wait?
will there still be love that covers shame?
will there still be hope and a new start?
will there still be a place called home?

I’ve been falling in my self-made pits
thinking I was strong enough to stand
I could conquer the world and be a star
thinking I would make it on my own

the only light I saw was shallow
didn’t bring me happiness or joy
only temporarily and fast passed by
left me even emptier than before

will there still be open arms that wait?
will there still be love that covers shame?
will there still be hope and a new start?
will there still be a place called home?

drifting farther and farther away from home
the memory of your eyes keep haunting me
the tears and the sadness I saw when leaving
are burned in my heart and never fades

I know you loved me, but I wonder if
you can still love me after all I’ve done
Is there grace and mercy great enough
to cover my shame and welcome me home

will there still be open arms that wait?
will there still be love that covers shame?
will there still be hope and a new start?
will there still be a place called home?

scared and insecure I start to walk
the long way home with head bowed down
do I dare to hope that you
will welcome me with open arms

I’m finally returning back to you
I’m coming home…

«But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.» (Luke 15:20)

«For this son (child) of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.» (Luke 15:24)

«I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
I will build you up again…»
(Jer.31:3-4a)

  1. Thank you Alicia for helping me out with my English!

  2. Ah sister, the never ending love of the Father who waits patiently for His children. What is years and decades to us, is but a mere thought to the Father who sits above time. Beautiful for the returning child, scary for those who reject calvary. If there be no time in heaven, then Christ today was crucified. Mercy for the contrite heart, justice for the stiff-neck.

    1. I just love the passage in Exodus (34:6-7) were we can read how God describe himself to Moses. God came down in a cloud and passed by in front of Moses proclaiming:

      “The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin…»

      What a loving and gracious God we have! His love never stops to amaze me!

  3. My dear sweet sister, it is always a blessing to read the gift and blessing that the LORD pours into you! I can identify with these emotions of thought! And it is such a thrill to know our Saviour’s love, and to know that HIS arms were open wide to accept us even before we ever thought of leaving HIM for whatever reason just to return later on! Precious Saviour!! Thank you for this blessing sis.. Prayers, blessings, (BiiiGHuuuGs!)) to you toooo!

    1. You’ve always known how to brighten my day and lift my spirit!

      I’m so glad it has nothing to do with me feeling good enough to be welcomed and that it has everything to do with the great and never-ending love of God! Precious Saviour indeed! Best ever! And he never changes!!!

      Lots of love and hugs to you 🙂
      Ohh- we were at a soccer-tournament today. Kristoffer played, he is keeper and actually pretty good for his age! He was pleased with the day! And both boys really happy when we stopped at Burgerking on our way back home to have laaate dinner (we only do it 3-4 times a year)
