Another Realm

But now I am coming to You; and I am saying these things while I am in the world, so that they may have My joy fulfilled within them. I have given them Your word and the world has hated them; for they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. John 17: 13-14

There are times when we want to escape this nasty, trouble-filled world.  Yet, we must stay.   But just “staying” is not enough.  We need more than that.  We need life in the midst of pain.  We need to be able to escape to, or better, “live in” another realm.  One that provides hope, rest, peace, power.  As followers of Christ, we can, in fact, live in two realms at once.  To be “in the world” but not “of” the world.  

This better, life-giving world can be yours too.   This world of the Spirit of God can give life to any mere mortal who wishes to live a life powered by another source, named Jesus.   Just read John 3:16.  

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 


I want to pass into the realm

Where another’s at the helm

Where other forces pull the strings

A place beyond mere earthly things

Yet I live in this world now

Can I not do both somehow?

Live my life here on the earth

Yet not enslaved to its dearth?

There is another realm to know

A place besides this world to go

Where there’s peace along the way

Where life’s stresses don’t dismay

This other realm is just as real

Unlike the earth it does not steal

The joy set forth for all our days

It showers love to loud horrays!

This mystery can be known quite well

If our hearts they want to dwell

On things above and not below

For then your heart shall surely know

I pray your heart and soul abide

For the Lord to be your guide

For our days can surely be

In heavens’ realm with Holy Thee
