Don’t get too comfortable this is not home

I don’t want to get too comfortable because this is not home.

Yes I am here but this is not my final destination.

I am on my way somewhere to spend an eternity with my creator

He has a purpose for me to accomplish as I am passing through



Lord help me to be faithful to do what you called me to

Cause getting too comfortable can distract me from what you put me here to do

The temptation is there to invest my treasures right here

And be driven by all that I can attain

But what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and loose His soul?

I want my daily actions to prove that I know the obvious answer.

I can live in such a way where my main focus is to satisfy this flesh

But what good is it because the end results is always a big mess

This world tries to steal my affection and sometimes my focus is not what it should be

I can’t look to the right or the left

Lord help me to have a steady gaze on you

Denying myself, picking up my cross and following you

Following you straight into eternity

NO, I can’t afford to get too comfortable because this is not home.


Reflection questions

  1. Do you think your focus is more on being comfortable in this life?
  2. Is heaven on your mind; or is it easy for you to get caught up in living only for now and not thinking about where you will spend eternity?
  3. How do you think your daily choices and focus would change if you lived in the reality that this is not your home, that this is not the end?
