Someone is not used to having big brother gone. You see, he is away on some sweet vaca with his BFF. Meanwhile, back on the home front, we are feeling a bit sad. Every morning we wake up and ask, “Is Kade coming home?”
A few hours later, I am commanded “Mom, go get Kade.”
Repeatedly throughout the day, I am asked, “Where is Kade? Let’s go get him.”
At bedtime, we don’t want to read our favorite book by Dr. Suess called “The Foot Book” because every time we turn the page to Slow Feet…Kade acts it out. But he’s not here. And once again, we are very sad. We are anxiously awaiting for him to come home. We are counting down the days.
The constant reminding by my lil’ one has me pondering…Do I anxiously await for Christ’s return? I’ll readily admit, it is not always on my front burner. I confess. Some days it never crosses my mind. And I am deeply saddened today that I have placed other things...non-important, petty, wasting away things…as a top priority.
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself. Philippians 3:20-21
We are to eagerly wait.
What possibly is more important?
Grocery store lists. Everyday chores. Kids running amok and a more. Last minutes to-do’s. And traffic a zoo. No wonder we don’t get anything done. But Jesus….He came and He went so we would not be all spent. Let’s not forget about Him. He is busy at work. And coming back soon. So please stay attune.
How often do you think of Christ’s return? What other things get in the way?
