Sunday’s Extras: My Place in this World

Hear me asking, where do I belong? Feels like I'm looking for a reason. Roamin' through the night to find my place in this world.

Hear me asking
Where do I belong?
Feels like I'm
Looking for a reason
Roamin' through the night to find
My place in this world

-Michael W. Smith

No matter our age, I think we’ve all felt this way at one time or another in our lives.  We all want to belong.  We all want to have a reason, a purpose for being here. 

Fortunately God has a plan for each and every one of us.   He promises us a hope and a future in Jeremiah 29:11-13.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.  You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."

As you can tell, this is one of my favorite passages.  I’ve shared it several times before. 

This song from Michael W. Smith sums up the questions we all ask at some point in our lives.

 

Here are the lyrics for my hearing impaired friends.

Place in this World – Michael W. Smith

The wind is moving
But I am standing still
A life of pages
Waiting to be filled

A heart that's hopeful
A head that's full of dreams
But this becoming
Is harder than it seems

Feels like I'm
Looking for a reason
Roamin' through the night to find
My place in this world
My place in this world
Not a lot to lean on
I need your light to help me find
My place in this world
My place in this world

If there are millions
Down on their knees
Among the many
Can you still hear me

Hear me asking
Where do I belong?
Is there a vision
That I can call my own?

Show me, I'm
Looking for a reason
Roamin' through the night to find
My place in this world
My place in this world
Not a lot to lean on
I need your light to help me find
My place in this world
My place in this world

Lookin' for a reason
Roamin' through the night to find
My place in this world
My place in this world
Not a lot to lean on
I need your light to help me find
My place in this world
My place in this world

Lookin' for a reason
Roamin' through the night to find
My place in this world
My place in this world
