Our Home in Him

I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to be “at home.” As we add yet another box to the stack of boxes waiting to be moved to “our new home,” a part of me isn’t quite sure where home is. Is it really where my heart is? Where my stuff is? Where my family is? Is it where my friends are?

 

How do we make a house a home? Hang our favorite pictures? Unpack all of the boxes? Cook meals in the kitchen? Even with bare walls and more and more boxes lining the walls, this place still feels like home. As I struggle to define what “home” means to me I think of what I tell friends who come to visit… “Make yourself at home.” What I mean is, be comfortable, be yourself.

 

As I grow in my relationship with Jesus, I must also confess that feeling “at home” means that it is okay to sometimes feel uncomfortable; it sometimes offers the invitation to evolve into your truer self. Learning to cook, learning to sew, learning a healthier lifestyle, learning to fix things, learning to let go of things…

 

Someone once said, “Home isn't where you're from, it's where you find light when all grows dark.” What brings comfort to me during this time of transitioning from one home to another is knowing that in Jesus I am always at home. Jesus invites all of us, as siblings of God, to “make ourselves at home.”
