My Anchor

After Advent has now come to a close, I looked back on how I have waited on God through the Season and the Prodigal parable. He waits for us, ever watching for us to come home, like the Prodigal parable. He also like to chase and keep us in His ever watchful sight. Wherever we go and whatever we do, He is following us and is there with us, gently prodding. As with the prodigal, He waits for us as our Father, but what a party He throws when we do come home!! God is very concerned about all of us, even the prodigals. See what He can and will do when we come back home. He watches always, even if He seems a long way from us. He is never more than a whisper or a plea away.

Our sure and certain hope is our Father God. He is our very reason to keep moving forward. Never backwards into the past. He is our future, and He has ordained it for us. Maybe this is the reason for the home coming party? He knows our future, but He also knows all the things that have happened to us in our past that shape us or change how we see and do things. We need to take the positives from our past and take them into our future. If we take our negatives with us, how they pull us down, keep us depressed, keep us from victory. When we look back over our tragedies, losses and disappointments, we can see how God has covered us with His love and His hope.

Our true homecoming is yet to happen. We have yet to spend our eternity in our eternal home. With our Father here on earth though, we can begin our eternal story and adventure.

You are my Anchor

My light and my salvation

You are my refuge

My hope is in you
