Dad, I Miss You [Devotion]
My dad passed away back in January of this year. He had a stroke back in September 2011 and had been struggling for his life since, until January 2, 2013.
The other day I woke up from a vivid dream. In my dream, my dad showed up. I was in shock and trying to make sense of it. He then offered me money, as he always did when he visited me from California. It was his way of showing me his love.
After a brief conversation, I told him how much I missed him. I started weeping uncontrollably in my dream, as I hugged him. I was woken up from the dream at that moment and found myself actually weeping and crying out loud in the middle of the night. It was an experience I will never forget.
That experience made me not only think about my earthly father, but my Heavenly Father. The Bible promises that Jesus will return one day to take us home. We don’t know when, but we know He will. But, are we yearning for His return?
Do we ever weep because our spirit yearns for His return so passionately? How often do we cry out to Him, not because we need Him to do something, but because we miss Him so much?
This week, I challenge you to ask the Lord to give you that yearning...that desperate cry for His return. Ask Him to give you eternity-focus, not just earthly-focus.
I wanna be homesick for my real home where I will be with Him for eternity.Comment on Facebook Comment on Twitter
