"A Far Country"

"This is a far country,a far country,
Not my home.."
This chorus on Andrew Peterson's album really resonates. Andrew,in an interview talks about a qoute or something"God is at home,we are in a far country."
There's a verse in the Bible that talks of how God's thoughts are higher than our thoughts,and His ways higher? than our ways and I suspect that when God sends souls to live in "a far country" He has put them there very purposely. A testing ground to see where their loyalties truly lie,perhaps? Maybe,probably,I'm probing in places I shouldn't. But,when my heart is in the right place,it feels real.I am in a far country.
