We Need to Live More at Home

“We need to live more at home” is a phrase-borrowed from Amy Carmichael’s devotional book, Edges of His Ways, dated November 9. She talks about God being our home and begins a poem with “Home of our hearts…”

I wonder if both children and older people share a propensity for “homesickness.” Children miss their homes when they are away from them. As older people we miss the places and times when we felt at home.

For some of us, our churches don’t feel like home anymore. For most of us, our country doesn’t feel like home. God’s Word tells us that, as citizens of heaven, we are strangers and aliens in a foreign world. But, if God Himself is our home, we have an unchanging access to intimacy and rest.

What do we need to do to live more at home?
