Come Home to Me

Heavenly dwelling place, home, refuge, suffering, trials

Our dog, Suubi, when our daughter arrived home from college.

In this world, some hard things are going to cross your path, Some days might be grueling. Trials may afflict you and bring you misery.

I understand. These are all things I experienced during my time on earth.

During difficult times, you may become exhausted and discouraged. Despair might possibly overtake you. Giving up and walking away from me might seem like the best thing to do.

Never allow the struggles of this life to take you down. Hold on. Believe in my goodness. Trust in my power. I am greater than any evil or challenge you will ever encounter. And I am on your side. I will hold you together. Let me be your lifeline.

Know that your resilience, strength, well-being, and steadfast faith are so very important to me.

As I wait for you to come home to my Father’s house, I pray for you constantly, interceding for you, asking my Father to protect you from the evil one.

I want you to persevere in your faith and make it home to me.

As hard as it might be, I don’t want you to be taken out of the world. I want my Father to make you strong for the world.

Remember, my strong Spirit lives inside those who have said “no” to their old way of living and “yes” to a future relying on me.

Because of who I am, God the Son, I have overcome evil, suffering, even death itself. Everything you come up against, I have faced and overcome. Nothing is too hard for me.

That same invincible Spirit is with you and in you. Always will be.

Take comfort in that as you make your way home to me.

When days drift in and you feel opposition all around you, don’t become weary. Don’t lose heart. Don’t allow anything to distract you. Keep your eyes glued square on me as you journey along the path my Father has planned for you.

My journey included immense suffering on my cross of shame. The shame and suffering meant nothing because your face . . . your redemption . . . was always on my mind. I carried you in my heart all the way home to my heavenly dwelling place. You’re still in my heart today as I sit at the right hand of the throne of God.

Trust my instructions. Take them to heart. Live by them and my Father and I will make our home in you.

You are my beloved. Dwell in my tent forever. Take shelter in the shadow of my wings.  Come home to me.

“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.” John 14:1-3

    I was just thinking this morning how ever-present the LORD is, and how comforting that FACT is when we allow ourselves to truly ponder it. Your post today is an encouragement of the LORD’s purpose for that message in my life right now, Lisa. Thanks for sharing from the heart.

  2. Aw, this was a very good post. Taking a few minutes and
    actual effort to create a very good article… but what can I say… I put
    things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get anything done.
