By Ruth Bell Graham

My home address?
In Him I dwell
wherever else I be –
as bird in the air,
as branch in the vine,
as tree in the soil,
as fish in the sea,
He is my home.

My business address?
Little Piney Cove
or London, Corinth,
Calcutta or Rome,
Shanghai or Paris.
My business address?
Wherever He puts me –
But He is my home.


This short, but powerful, poem from Ruth Bell Graham reminds us to keep our focus on Christ. And, that wherever God has placed us on this earth, it is for a purpose: to tell others about the hope that we have found in a relationship with Jesus Christ. The poem can be found in Clouds Are the Dust of His Feet, Crossway Books, 1992.
