There was once a man who had two sons.
The younger said to his father, ‘Father, I want RIGHT NOW what’s coming to me.”
So the father divided the property.
It wasn’t long before the younger son packed his bags and left for a distant country.
There in a strange and foreign country UNDISCIPLINED and UNRESTRAINED , he WASTED EVERYTHING he had.
After he had gone through all his money, there was a bad food shortage all through that country and he BEGAN TO HURT.
He signed on with a citizen there who assigned him to his fields to FEED THE PIGS.
He was so hungry he would have eaten the corn-cobs in the pigs barns.
But NO ONE would give him any food.
That my friends …. brought him to his SENSES ….
He said, ‘All those farmhands working for my father sit down to THREE meals a day, and here I am STARVING to death.
I AM GOING BACK to my father.
He got right up and went home to his father.
When he was still a LONG way off, HIS FATHER SAW him.
The FATHER’S heart pounding, he ran out, embraced him, and kissed him.
Now my friends – here’s a true Love Story filled with Love, Grace and Mercy.
This is a true unconditional L♥️VE story. The actions and choices of the son may not have pleased his father…BUT Daddy’s Love was UNQUESTIONABLE. Never once did the son in spite of the mess he found himself in …. ever questioned his father’s love.
Here’s another slant to this L♥️VE story….How many times do we ignore and reject anything dealing with JESUS and race off believing we can enjoy all that life has to offer without suffering the consequences.
Don’t be fooled – the young man had to face his consequences but fortunately he came to his senses.
After the heavy partying, life takes an unforeseen turn and reality steps in – bankruptcy, sexual diseases, loss of family, unemployment, loneliness, hunger, low self esteem, etc. All that left is hoping that everyone comes to their senses.
God who is rich in mercy, love and grace — when we are still afar off sees us slowly and fearfully walking back to Him.
He embraces us, passionately kisses our hurting wounds and unreservedly hugs us for all the world to see.
There’s absolutely NO greater L♥️VE than a father that can love his child unconditionally. If you have a praying father – He is God’s hands extended. Mercy, Grace and Love is waiting.
God is our daddy, our papa, our husband, and anything we need Him to be.
Jesus is waiting to embrace you.
Jesus is the answer to every question….
He is the great physician that heals all kinds of pain and He hears every whimpering cry.
