New Blog

This is a new blog for me. I usually blog on myspace, but am going to try to do both, and will most likely post the same blog on both places.
I got my blog name from a favorite song of mine, "I Don't Belong", originially titled, "Sojourner's song". The idea of the song, is that as Christians, we are just sojourners here - we aren't here to live forever, just to visit, and we don't belong. The more years go by, the more obvious that is becoming. I borrowed the term from the song to refer to myself as a sojourner here, for my true home is Heaven, and it is my ultimate goal to make it there. Song Lyrics here:

I DON'T BELONGwords by Gloria Gaither, music by Buddy Greene
It's not homeWhere men sell their souls
And the taste of power is sweet
Where wrong is rightAnd neighbors fight
While the hungry are dyin' in the streets
Where kids are abused And women are used
And the weak are crushed by the strong
Nations gone madJesus is sadAnd I don't belong

Chorus:I don't belongAnd I'm going someday
Home to my own native land
I don't belongAnd it seems like I hear
The sound of a "welcome home" band
I don't belongI'm a foreigner here
Singing a sojourner's song
I've always knownThis place ain't home
And I don't belong

Don't belongBut while I'm here
I'll be living like I've nothin' to lose
And while I breatheI'll just believe
My Lord is gonna see me through
I'll not be deceivedBy earth's make-believe
I'll close my ears to her siren song
By praisin' His name, I'm not ashamed
'Cause I don't belong

Repeat Chorus
I belong To a kingdom of peace
Where only love is the law
Where children lead And captives are freed
And God becomes a baby on the straw
Where dead men live
And rich men give
Their kingdoms to buy back a song
Where sinners like me
Become royalty
And we'll all belong

Yes I belong
And I'm going someday
Home to my own native land
Where I'll belong
And it seems like I hear
The sound of a "welcome home" band
Yes, I'll belong
No foreigner there
Singin' a sojourner's song
I've always known
I'm going home
Where I belong
Yes I've always known
This place ain't home
And I don't belong

So glad you decided to join us on blogspot. I am happy you've joined since it is much easier for me to check blogspot than myspace and I like it better. :-) Like the name of your blog too!
