The Heart of God

A story of true love

Luke Chapter 16..

(from The Message)

“When he was still a long way off his father saw him.  His heart pounding, he ran out, embraced him, and kissed him”

The father sees his son coming at a distance.  His eyes brighten up.  His heart begins to pound with excitement.  The father begins to run towards his son. 

His son is making a long journey back home, alone.  He is walking with his head down. He has just wasted all his money on alcohol, drugs and prostitution.  The son is smelly, dirty, unshaven – he has not had a bath for weeks.   He is also penniless. 

The father begins to run faster and faster towards his son.  His heart is pounding and pounding.  There are tears rolling down his cheeks.  These are the tears of excitement, joy and love. 

The son does not know what to expect!  

The father is running and getting nearer his son.  There is nothing going to stop him reaching his son.  The father is now in reaching distance of his son, and he begins slowly to open up his arms ready to embrace his son. 

The father reaches his son, throws his arms around him and kisses him.  The father whispers in his son’s ear ‘Welcome home son!   I love you!’.

It was not the what the son expected!

Then the party began…

Dear Father

Please let me feel

 Your love

Please let me feel

Your forgiveness

Please give me a hug

Please let me hear you

Whisper in my ear

Welcome home!

I love you!

In Jesus name
