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
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
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.
- Do you think your focus is more on being comfortable in this life?
- 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?
- 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?
