Daddy's Coming

Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.  Mark 10:15 NIV

Daddy's Coming“Daddy’s coming, Daddy’s coming!”

We once had the privilege of spending the day with our granddaughter. Repeatedly throughout the day, she shared heartfelt affirmation: “Now, I already told you Daddy’s coming.” Then, as we feasted on a tasty homemade lunch, she reminded us again.

Before leaving, our son had lovingly held, kissed, and reassured her that he would return soon. His promise had captured her thoughts and convinced her heart. She could not help but believe and anticipate his return.

During the day, she enjoyed napping, swinging, birdwatching, rock collecting, singing, handprint painting, eating farm fresh peaches and ripe, sweet red cherries, and dancing. But although delightful, she still focused on her dad’s return.  

We can believe that our heavenly Daddy’s word is true, just as our granddaughter believed her dad’s word. He is faithful and will do what He says. All the promises of the Lord are yes and amen.

My granddaughter’s message spoke to my heart. I need promptings about my eternal focus that my heavenly Father will return. Amid pleasures, pain, work, leisure, disappointments, daily duties, difficulties, serving, trials, or travels, I must remember Daddy’s coming. And when He returns, He will take us to be with Him forever. My granddaughter carried the truth from the Lord to her G’ma.  

What are some ways you can better focus on Christ’s return?
