Carrie Underwood is an American Idol winner, a Grammy Award winner, and a terrific country female vocalist. Although Underwood is famous and successful, she is a light in the Hollywood industry.
Underwood is a Christian and has sang “Jesus Take the Wheel,” “Temporary Home” and other inspirational songs. My favorite song of hers is “Temporary Home.” The first time I heard it my heart was so touched. The video may move you to tears! Enjoy:
Here are some of the lyrics:
This is my temporary home,
It’s not where I belong,
Windows and rooms
But we’re passing through…
This was just a stop,
On the way to where we’re going,
I’m not afraid because I know
This is my temporary home.
Underwood’s lyrics are powerful and full of encouraging stories and truths. She reminds us that this is our “temporary home” and that we are just “passing through.” Sometimes it is easy to lose sight of this and to be sidetracked by the busyness of life, but it is important to remember our mission and purpose here on Earth.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run run with perserverence the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:1).
I am a stranger on earth; do not hide your commandments from me (Psalm 119:19).
Remember PI girls, keep pressing on toward the prize! The Lord will reward you!
If you feel like you have honored God but no one has seen or acknowledged you, REMEMBER: GOD sees! You are so valuable to God and you will be rewarded in Heaven! While on Earth, this is your test!
Do you not know, that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown, that will not last; but we do it to win a crown that will last forever (1 Corinthians 9:24).
