Where I Belong – Switchfoot

_ _ _ _

Dear Friends,

The lyrics of this song are dear to me. They are a confession of the hope that lives in me. They are about the last moments of my existence on earth and the transition to my new life after death.

Have a great day!

W.

Feeling like a refugee
Like you don’t belong to me
The colors flash across the sky

This air feels strange to me
Feeling like a tragedy
I take a deep breath and close my eyes
One last time
One last time

Storms on the wasteland
Dark clouds on the plains again
We were born into the fight

But I’m not sentimental
This skin and bones is a rental
And no one makes it out alive

Until I die I’ll sing these songs
On the shores of Babylon
Still looking for a home
In a world where I belong

Where the weak are finally strong
Where the righteous right the wrongs
Still looking for a home
In a world where I belong

Feels like we’re just waiting, waiting
While our hearts are just breaking, breaking
Feels like we’ve been fighting against the tide

I wanna see the earth start shaking
I wanna see a generation
Finally waking up inside

Until I die I’ll sing these songs
On the shores of Babylon
Still looking for a home
In a world where I belong

Where the weak are finally strong
Where the righteous right the wrongs
Still looking for a home
In a world where I belong
A world where I belong

This body’s not my home
This world is not my own
But I still can hear the sound
Of my heart beating out
So let’s go boys, play it loud

And on that final day I die
I want to hold my head up high
I want to tell you that I tried
To live it like a song

And when I reach the other side
I want to look you in the eye
And know that I’ve arrived
In a world where I belong
In a world where I belong
In a world where I belong
Where I belong
Where I belong
Where I belong

Where I belong

I still believe we can live forever
You and I we begin forever now
Forever now
Forever
I still believe in us together
You and I we’re here together now
Together now
Forever now
Forever now
Forever now
Forever
Forever

FULL INTERVIEW – He Didn’t Care About God…but was in Tears After Hearing This

Dear Friends,

Ray Comfort, a Christian evangelist, talks about Jesus with a young man who doesn’t care much about Christianity at first. However, once Ray brings up his sin against God, it strikes his heart and he begins crying.

Against the Tide – Finding God in an Age of Science

Dear Friends,

Professor Lennox has devoted decades to rigorously investigating the intersection of science and Christianity. In Against the Tide, he counters the rise of scientific atheism and explains the rational foundations of his belief.

The film is a travelogue, an examination of modern science, an excursion into history, an autobiography, and more. But at heart, it is the story of one man’s daring stand against the tide of contemporary atheism and its drive to relegate belief in God to society’s catalogue of dead ideas.

Join the conversation between Dr. John Lennox—esteemed Oxford professor, mathematician, and philosopher of science—and veteran Hollywood actor and director Kevin Sorbo as they journey from Oxford to Jerusalem and explore the evidence on which Lennox’s Christian faith stands firm.

Say No to Depression

With vulnerability and authenticity, Joni shares about her battle against the dark opponent of depression. Depression will try to convince you that you have no purpose and that God’s promises are not to be believed. But as Joni explains, you must not act on those feelings. You have to fight to act on what God says. May Joni’s exhortation from God’s Word inspire you to say no to depression.

Thanks Joni, for your encouraging words.

Blessings, W.

Walk for Jesus – Jerusalem Pilgrimage: Episode 16 – Day 93-98

Dear Friends,

Last Tuesday we returned from my hiking trip in Italy. Due to some physical issues, it was a challenging and frustrating time for me. I had to hike short distances and had to skip certain parts of the trail because the distances were too long. This you will find back in the trail map below.

Eventually, I had to make the decision to quit before the appointed time. I stopped in Altopascio. The plan was to fly back to The Netherlands on the 7th of October but now we flew back 1 week earlier.

For a day by day impression (starting with day 1) of my ‘Walk for Jesus’ you can also follow my ‘Pilgrim’s Corner‘ Instagram account.

God willing, I will continue my hike and return to Italy as soon as I have fully recovered. I will keep you updated ….

Enjoy the route and the pictures I made of this trip below.

God bless!

  • She Knew She Was Called to Serve. Then COVID-19 Came.
    Aboard a Mercy Ship, a kindergarten teacher asked, “Should I stay or should I go?” She had to decide right then. Should she stay or should she go? In early March, when the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, hundreds of volunteers aboard the Africa Mercy gathered in the ship’s lounge for a mandatory meeting. The American Emba […]
  • Sometimes, Telling Us More About the Pilgrims Actually Tells Us Less
    A new study touches on many factors that shaped life in Plymouth Colony. But the most important one gets lost in the laundry list. This December marks 400 years since the Mayflower dropped anchor in Plymouth Harbor, and for the past 200 years the story of its passengers has loomed large in American memory. Generations of schoolchildren have learned its basic […]
  • Research: Racial Minorities Were More Likely to Contract COVID-19 at Churches
    Cell phone location data indicated religious gatherings appeared to be a top transmission spot when the pandemic took off. New research suggests that, at the beginning of the pandemic, Americans from lower-income or majority-minority neighborhoods were more likely to be infected with COVID-19 through religious gatherings such as churches than those living in […]
  • Anglican Churches in the UK Are Shrinking in Size but Not Impact
    Report: How smaller congregations are still showing up to support their communities through growing social action. There are two pictures I could offer you of the role and significance of the Church of England in contemporary British society. The first is one of growing secularization and declining church attendance. The second is one where the church is the […]
