Home is where the heart is

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Leader & Comment -

Isa­iah 32 vs 18; “My peo­ple will dwell in a peace­ful habi­ta­tion, in se­cure homes, and in quiet rest­ing places.”

OVER­TIME I have no­ticed that re­gard­less of where one may come from, home is home. Our spirit some­how rec­on­ciles to the fact that God has des­ig­nated this spe­cific place to be the place of your ori­gin.

With this you de­velop an in­fi­nite love for the space that you call home, re­gard­less of the con­di­tions. It could be drought prone, with very high tem­per­a­tures or it could be very cold to the point of dis­com­fort, home is home .

When the chil­dren of Is­rael where ex­iled they sang songs of the place they knew to be home and how much they longed to go back, hence the pop­u­lar song that goes like this; “By the rivers of Baby­lon, there we sat down, yea, we wept when we re­mem­bered Zion”

Let’s pray for the places we call home, may the Lord con­tinue to look af­ter them and more im­por­tantly, may His en­com­pass­ing pro­tec­tion al­low our coun­tries to pros­per, be­cause He can make all things beau­ti­ful.

May the Lord give guidance to the coun­tries we call home. Be blessed.
