Way over yonder

Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.

“In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.

“If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.

“And you know the way where I am going.”

Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?”

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

John 14:1-6 (NASB)

Way Over Yonder

Way over yonder is a place that I know
Where I can find shelter from the hunger and cold
And the sweet tasting good life is easily found
Way over yonder, that’s where I’m bound

I know when I get there, the first thing I’ll see
Is the sun shinin’ golden, shinin’ right down on me
Then trouble’s gonna lose me, worry, leave me behind
And I’ll stand up proudly in true peace of mind

Talkin’ about, talkin’ about
Way over yonder is the place I have seen
In the garden of wisdom from some long ago dream

And maybe tomorrow, I’ll find my way
To the land where the honey runs in rivers each day
And the sweet tasting good life is so easily found

Way over yonder, that’s where I’m bound
That’s where I’m bound, talkin’ about, talkin’ about
Way over yonder, that’s where I’m bound

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. ~ John 14:27 (KJV)

    Stunning scripture and I love when you post a song from my college days. I heard Carole a whole different way tonight. Thank you, and have a blessed Easter.

    Kathy, there is so much today that crumples me into a twisted heap of anxiety. And I admit that I have been both troubled and afraid. I stared long and hard in the mirror tonight until I barely recognized the image looking back at me. After I blurred and came back into focus, I finally recognized that God created me to be His. Please pray for my heart and head to connect that everlasting truth… and thank you for this as it is just what I needed tonight.

    We have all the somber tones leading up to the cross – – and to end with the final Hallelujah for He is Risen as He said! May we rejoice in the Fact that we can celebrate an empty tomb, for Jesus is Alive !!
