I have come to absolutely love Diddy – Dirty Money‘s music video, “Coming Home.” I have attached the video below for those that do not know the song.
The lyrics and authentic expression has really hit me. The pain of what he now knows his kids see and want to be. That he has nothing to show for what he has done. And the desire for forgiveness, grace, and a place to come home. Here are the lyrics to the chorus:
I’m coming home, I’m coming home, tell the World I’m coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes
I’m coming home, I’m coming home, tell the World that I’m coming
I get that P. Diddy does not hold to Christian beliefs and his intent with this song was not to share Christ, yet I see the love of Christ flowing from this. Some see the beauty and design of God in nature, others in the intelligent design. I have always seen Christ in the love and compassion of relationships, even more so in the family where a father comes to truly love his children.
