Coming Home - Just As I Am...

Have you ever been homesick?
It's a hard thing to go through
When you're homesick
your world turns upside-down
and backwards. It can paralyze
you emotionally and keep you 
from enjoying the place
you are in. Homesickness
really is a longing for home.

There is another kind of
homesickness that can impact
our lives. It is spiritual
homesickness. God made us
for the purpose of knowing 
and enjoying Him--so when
we live our lives separated
from Him because of sin,
we experience spiritual
homesickness. We may identify
it as loneliness or lack of
fulfillment. But regardless of
what we call it, it is an
empty place within us that
only God can fill.

--Roy Lessin

"Look! I have been standing at the door,
and I am constantly knocking. If anyone
hears Me calling him and opens the door,
I will come in and fellowship with him
and he with me."
--Revelation 3:20 TLB


About Roy Lessin
He was led to the Lord by his father, Joseph, who was raised an orthodox Jew in the Bronx, New York. Joseph was forty years of age when he discovered a Gideon Bible in his hotel room in Las Vegas, Nevada. He had never read the Bible in English and started to read in the book of Genesis. When it came time to check out of the hotel, Joseph stole the Bible. He continued reading the Bible whenever he could. As he read the book of Isaiah, God opened his eyes to see that Jesus Christ was his Messiah.
