    First it was a thought which
    You failed to rebuke.
    Then it was God's word
    Which you tried to refute.

    Very subtle and not overnight,
    You allowed satan
    To dim God's light.
    It has become so dark
    That you cannot see.
    But don't be ashamed to breathe,
    "God help me!"

    Home is only a breath away!

    Though satan hath spread his deceits over
    You like a calming native tree,
    Greater is Christ who is still with you.
    Let Him come back in so that you may see...

    Home is only a breath away!

    You left home...to your regret,
    Yet Jesus is still waiting to
    Hold you and kiss your neck.
    Simply confess...then repent.
    Turn away from the pleasures
    Of sin without relent.
    Don’t worry about how...just come on back.
    Jesus will start the process of
    Renewal and get you right on track.

    When we fall intimately in love
    With Jesus,
    No deceit of satan's can come in
    And freeze us.

    Be consumed by a love that will
    Never grow cold.
    Be consumed by God's word and
    Experience joys untold.

    I know you are tired
    Even in the midst
    Of a crowd of thousands,
    You are still alone.
    Why don’t cha come on back home?

    If you still have breath,
    This moment is your day.
    It never too late to come back,
    Because...home is only a breath away.

    If you’ve never really had a home,
    A place of dwelling
    For your wandering soul,
    Just take a little time now
    To talk to
    The only one, who can bring
    You in out of the cold.

    Jesus is waiting.
    Just talk to him, the same way
    I’m talking to you.
    Don’t worry...He’ll know what to do.

    Let him cleanse you, so that you may
    Feel, live and be...be free.
    Come on...let’s go home.

    simply beautiful...

    too many of us are unfamiliar with how wonderful a personal relationship with GOD is. we believe that pleasures of the flesh is what's important...but knowing GOD will open your eyes to what TRUE HAPPINESS is. there are some who think that they can't have FUN and be close to GOD at the same time. THAT'S NOT TRUE. those in GOD's care, under HIS umbrella, know more about having fun than anyone.:)

    LIFE IS GOOD
    EVERY...DAY.
    and
    home is only
    a breath away.

    *deeply felt*

    THANK YOU.
