The following STORY is taken from Luke 15:11–32
Father had two sons; one was satisfied with his inheritance, the other desired more. So he left his fathers home, in pursuit of his desires. He partied, and had a good time, until all his money was spend. He then joined the pigs to eat with them, but even in the pigsty, he could not find pleasure for his soul, and was very hungry. Looking at his surroundings, and the pigs around him, he decided to take a chance.
My fathers slaves are treated better than me!
“How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! 18 I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants. (verses 17-19)
He came to himself, and decided to come back home. He didn’t think his father would welcome him back, but decided to take a chance anyway! The opposite happened! Father welcomed him BACK with OPEN arms; killed a fat calf; and prepared a table of delights for him. He delighted his soul to the abundance of his heart, but his brother envied him, and because he envied, he was kicked out, and send away into hellfire.
I too was born in a Christian home, distracted by the world, I desired more. I left and delighted my soul, until my money was spend. I found myself in prison, surrounded by pigs, in a pigsty. I desired to be fed, but found nothing to satisfy my soul. Settling for less, I stayed, and settled myself in a pigpen.
THEN I woke up! Suddenly I remembered that the slaves of my father had a share of his food. I decided that I was going to go BACK.
I made up my mind, in 2015 to live for the LORD, and I was not going to settle for anything that the world offered me. My father met me with OPEN arms, and celebrated my arrival. He gave me the best of everything, prepared a TABLE of DELIGHT for my soul, and continues to fulfill the desires of my heart.
My table is SET up of experiences, from my JOURNEY, designed to ignite hearts. Lessons, and insights from my past, up to TODAY. NOT only did he feed my soul to the abundance, he accepted me, and called me his BELOVED!
If today you are wondering whether the father STILL misses you, stop battling, and make your way back to HIS KINGDOM. He is WAITING on you with OPEN arms, desiring to give you the VERY BEST.
Come and DELIGHT your SOUL at his TABLE! All you have went through is for your benefit, all the arrows you had encountered were not meant to break you, they were designed to MAKE YOU, into who you were CALLED to be.
Father is CALLING you back home, Come back!!
