Homesick

HomesickA Christian song by MercyMe, and our tribute to a friend who was recently involved in a tragic accident and is now home with the Lord. In 1 Thessalonians 4:14-14, Paul encourages them saying, "Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him."

Indeed those who have died in Christ, will live with Him throughout all eternity. While we may grieve such a dear loss, we have hope, because the dead in Christ have gone to a better place, and because we will all one day be reunited with one another and with Christ, either when we die or until He comes again. In Christ there are no goodbyes, and in Christ, there is no end. So I'll hold on to Jesus with all that I have, to see you again.

I just wanted to say what a great help this is. I'm just starting to learn guitar, but my dad passed away this last year and I'm trying to learn this song to sing at my mom's bday. You are praising god and blessing people in ways you could never imagine. Thanks again and keep up the good work
