Jesus Promised me A Home Over There
Something about “blues based gospel.” Sometimes songs like this are derided as promising “pie in the sky when you die.” But there is something songs like this teach us. They teach us that we know that we are somebody in spite of what we are going through now and in spite of the struggles we have to deal with.
You may “red-line” us out of decent housing today, but Jesus promised me a home over there. You may put children in cages who seek refuge and asylum, but Jesus promised me a home over there. There is sometimes a moment when we must hear great words.
