Posts Tagged ‘heavenly home’


“Nobody called me,”  I said to my husband.  “I feel marginalized–like I’m just not important enough.”  The news I’d been waiting for…praying for…never came.  Instead, it was announced like a headline to the rest of the world–on Facebook.  Feeling rejected–as I had for years–I wondered if I would ever stop yearning for the relationship I’d been denied from childhood.

Seeking direction, I opened my Bible and read words that were a balm to my wounded heart, “Lord, through all the generations you have been our home!”  From the time of my youth until now, He has been my home.   A refuge.  A place of rest.  A welcoming Father who will one day carry me across the heavenly threshold into loving presence.

Do you, too, ache to be accepted?  Are you wondering what you can do to bridge the gap in that damaged relationship?  Have you believed you are unlovable?

Friend, nothing could be further from the truth.  If you look closely, you’ll notice the door to your heavenly home standing open and the Father calling to you, “Come, my child.  I am Acceptance; I am the Bridge; I am Love.  Welcome home.”


Scripture for Reflection

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.  (Deuteronomy 33:27)
