Not My Home

November has been longer than all of 2020 combined. Our family spent the first week of November mourning my grandmothers death. She was the last of my grandparents, and the blow brought a very certain sense of finality. The same weekend, my mom began feeling ill. Within a only few days of a positive coronavirus diagnosis she lost fourteen pounds and added pneumonia to her already dangerous condition. Being quarantined myself has left little to do but vacillate between worry and prayer as my mom struggles simple to breathe. How easily we take for granted every breath until the struggle to find it leads to ambulance trips and oxygen from a machine. Consider that she is dealing with all this while grieving the loss of her own mother and it suddenly seems like more than than we were meant to bear.



But this world is not my home, and it isn’t theirs either.


Romans 8:18 says “Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.”


Growing up, I attended a small church in the country located on the outskirts of Geneseo, Illinois. It was there I first heard this old gospel song by Albert E. Brumley & Mary Reeves. I’m keeping it close to me now.


“This World Is Not My Home”


This world is not my home, I'm just a-passin' through

My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue

The angels beckon me from Heaven's open door

And I can't feel at home in this world anymore


Oh Lord, you know I have no friend like you

If Heaven's not my home, then Lord what will I do

The angels beckon me from Heaven's open door

And I can't feel at home in this world anymore


They're all expecting me and that's one thing I know

My Saviour pardoned me and now I onward go

I know he'll take me through, though I am weak and poor

And I can't feel at home in this world anymore


Oh Lord, you know I have no friend like you

If Heaven's not my home, then Lord what will I do

The angels beckon me from Heaven's open door

And I can't feel at home in this world anymore


I have a loving Mother just over in Gloryland

And I don't expect to stop until I shake her hand

She's waiting now for me in Heaven's open door

And I can't feel at home in this world anymore


Oh Lord, you know I have no friend like you

If Heaven's not my home, then Lord what will I do

The angels beckon me from Heaven's open door

And I can't feel at home in this world anymore


Just over in Gloryland we'll live eternally

The saints on every hand are shouting victory

Their songs of sweetest praise drift back from Heaven's shore

And I can't feel at home in this world anymore


Oh Lord, you know I have no friend like you

If Heaven's not my home, then Lord what will I do

The angels beckon me from Heaven's open door

And I can't feel at home in this world anymore
