From the first moment when I heard Your name
Something in my heart came alive
You showed me love and no words could explain
A love with the power to
Open the door
To a world I was made for

And I watch as the cold winter melts into spring
And I’ll be remembering You
Oh and I’ll smell the flowers and hear the birds sing
and I’ll be remembering You, I’ll be remembering You

And I’ll watch as the sun fills a sky that was dark
And I’ll be remembering You
And I’ll think of the way that You fill up my heart
And I’ll be remembering You

This song was written for one of the Narnia movies and I love it. My favorite line is “You showed me a love and no words could explain, a love with the power to open the door to a world I was made for.” It’s so amazing to think that we weren’t made for this world! Most days I am extremely thankful for that because I don’t fit in here. I feel like such an outsider. But isn’t that what the bible calls us? Aliens & strangers?

Hebrews 11:13 …They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth.

How odd that one would admit that. But here I am admitting it. I’m a stranger here. This isn’t where I belong. And someday the door will be opened into the world I WAS made for. How I long for that day. Tyler wrote a note on the inside of my Chronicles of Narnia book. I will never forget it as long as I live. He ends it by saying, “In the darkest times,, know you are loved, and made for a place such as Narnia.” I love that. And I cling to that hope. I can’t wait to see Jesus face, worship him, and spend the rest of my days forever fitting in. A world where I belong.
