Homecoming

This past week was a difficult one for many that I love. In our family, we lost Antoinette at the ripe old age of 89. We learned of a few others that have passed into glory as well.

We know Antoinette loved the LORD so, we are comforted by the word of God that teaches us what a great reception she is receiving from Him. While this is difficult for us to fully understand, it is worth meditating on in our time of mourning. Otherwise, we’re sad with what seems like no consolation.

The blessings and benefits of loving God and committing our lives to Him are for this life and the next. Yet, so many that I know seem to have no need for God. It’s an issue of treasure. I am fully aware of all of the issues I face that draw me away from God so, I am empathetic towards those who find it difficult to draw near to Him.

Nevertheless, I pray that if you’re reading this and feel frustrated with God to talk to Him about it. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you in a way that will win your heart. Seek Him to learn from Him about His marvelous plan for you. Christmas and Easter are so much more than holidays. They are times for us to remember God’s great love.

Psalm 116:15 When they arrive at the gates of death,
God welcomes those who love him.
