come home

for times of existentialism...
and bewildered weariness...
and lonely achings...

2 Timothy 2:9, 10 in the New Living Translation version hit me like a rock on friday night:
"It is God who saved us and chose us to live a holy life. He did this not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan long before the world began--to show his love and kindness to us through Christ Jesus. And now he has made all of this plain to us by the coming of Christ Jesus, our Savior, who broke the power of death and showed us the way to everlasting life through the Good News."

got this song off gracet's blog. makes me think of home...

softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
calling for you and for me
see on the portals He's waiting and watching
watching for you and for me

come home, come home
ye who are weary come home
earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling
calling O sinner come home...

ah. sigh.
