Inspirational Song For Today: Temporary Home

I heard this song today and it really touched my heart. We need to remember that this is our “Temporary Home.” It is not where we belong!

“Temporary Home” by Carrie Underwood

Little boy, six years old
A little too used to being alone
Another new mom and dad, another school
Another house, that’ll never be home
When people ask him how he likes this place
He looks up and says with a smile upon his face

This is my temporary home, it’s not where I belong
Windows and rooms that I’m passing through
This is just a stop on the way to where I’m going
I’m not afraid because I know this is my temporary home

Young mom on her own
She needs a little help, got nowhere to go
She’s looking for a job, looking for a way out
‘Cause a halfway house will never be a home
At night she whispers to her baby girl
Someday we’ll find our place here in this world

This is our temporary home, it’s not where we belong
Windows and rooms that we’re passing through
This is just a stop on the way to where we’re going
I’m not afraid because I know this is our temporary home

Old man, hospital bed
The room is filled with people he loves
And he whispers
“Don’t cry for me, I’ll see you all someday”
He looks up and says “I can see God’s face”

This is my temporary home, it’s not where I belong
Windows and rooms that I’m passing through
This was just a stop on the way to where I’m going
I’m not afraid because I know this was my temporary home
This is our temporary home

  1. Amen. This reminds me of when the Lord was moving me all over the country. I’d tell people, “I’m just passing through.” That’s the first time I’ve heard that song. Love it!

  2. My brother Carlos was telling me yesterday the same thing..he’s like sometimes I look around and say none of this matters it’s all temporary until we go home. ❤👍☝
