What I'm Listening To: "Home" by Phillip Phillips

I think we may have outgrown our home. Not the one we're physically living in because it has plenty of room and space and it's just the four of us and our sweet, old dog. But I'm pretty sure we've outgrown this season of life, this place God has had us call home for over the past six years. It just doesn't fit us as well as it used to and like a pair of my son's outgrown jeans, it feels tight around the waist and there's not much room to breathe. 

God is on the move. 

I sense it deep down in my heart and feel it in my bones.

The ground below us is shifting, the clouds are rolling in, the winds are picking up, and a storm is brewing. Change is coming. I can't say when, I can't say where, but I know my God is up to something and he's haunting me in the most beautiful ways through this song. It plays continually on my stereo and across my heart and even when I sleep, I'm aware of the inviting, hopeful lyrics. Though Phillip Phillips sings the song, it's the voice of Jesus that I hear...

Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
Cause i’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone
Cause i’m going to make this place your home

God is calling us to another cliff... another leap of trust and dependence on him. He's offering his presence and he promises we won't go the journey alone. Whether we move clear across the country or down the street and around the bend, he'll be with us every single step.

"I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do and I will not abandon them."  
~Isaiah 42:16

I wonder, is God on the move and up to something fresh and new in your life as well? What does this song say to your heart? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
