A Place To Call a Home


A Place To Call a Home

I've been so many places as we moved from town to town
So many different addresses
I can hardly write them down

And sometimes wondered what it's like
To call one spot a home
Turning neighbor into friends
With whom we've played and fought and grown

But home is not just where we sleep
Or know the names of streets
Or even just a steeple where
We've gone for Sunday meets

But going where the Shepherd calls
And leads us on the way
It's lying down and waking up
With God at peace today

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. Psalm 139:17-18 KJV

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.

      1. Okay Barb I just wanted to let you know that your suggestion of turning this poem into a song seemed a little intimidating. So I tried dodging the idea but I couldn’t shake the feeling that you were right and I should pray about it. Well I am working on that today and I wanted to say thank you for challenging me to do more. God bless and have a great week-end. Not sure when the project will be done but stay tuned!
