Just Come Home!
The other day while standing at a traffic light waiting to cross the street I noticed a man standing next to me who was in a deep conversation on his cell phone. He was speaking rather loudly as he instructed the person on the other end of the phone to "Just Come Home". I imagined that the person on the other end of that call was explaining why they couldn't or wouldn't return home. But the gentleman standing next to me was not accepting any excuses. He kept saying over and over again, "Just Come Home".
This gentleman said "Just Come Home" with such confidence to assure the person on the other end of the phone that everything would be alright the moment they returned home...that life would be so much better when and if they would only return home.
The image that popped into my mind after hearing that conversation was Jesus standing before us with outstretched arms bidding us to come to Him. In this image, Jesus says nothing but His outstretched arms represent love, forgiveness and protection.
I want to remind you that there is nothing that you have done so wrong that God will not forgive you. All you have to do is repent and go back to Him...just go home. The Lord is beckoning you to "Just come home". He is pulling at your heart strings asking you to "Just come home". In some cases he is making you uncomfortable where you are so that you will "Just come home". Know that Jesus loves you so very much and He wants the best for you.
I encourage you to not allow the spirit of commendation to stop you from reaching your destiny. Know that there is NOTHING too hard for God. God can fix ANYTHING! He can fix you...the situation...the circumstance...whatever challenges you may be facing...GOD GOT YOU. I know sometimes things may look hopeless but be encouraged and don't you dare give up. JUST COME HOME!
Jesus says in Matthew 11:28, "Come unto me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest". In other words, Just Come Home.
Have a blessed day living on purpose!
