God Moments

My daughter, Autumn and her family were here to Memorial Day weekend. My son, Nick, had come

down with them from Tennessee. The anticipation for their arrival was intense. I also had my two

granddaughters, Abbie and Bryleigh, at my house. All five of my grandchildren and most of my family

within arms reach! Hugs, Hugs, Hugs and Kisses! My joy was over the moon. However, my middle

son, Robert could not be here. He was preparing to go to Army training for a month. As much joy as I

had for all my family being gathered, I missed him terribly. I wanted him to be part of this great

family reunion.

I think God feels this way when we gather for church or in our fellowships. He knows our love and

returns it with great joy! As much as he loves us, he desires his missing children. He craves their

embrace and love. Sadly, so many don’t even know about God’s great love. His connection to those

lost children is through us! We are called to share God’s love, grace, and mercy. After all, they are our lost

sisters and brothers. How great is God’s love for us to die for us? We need to die to ourselves and live

in Christ to love as God loves.

Ephesians 5:1

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; NASB

Holy Father, Thank you for loving us and inviting us to your bountiful table as your

children.

Open our hearts to find the lost children you have also invited to be in your presence

and know your everlasting love. Give us Holy eyes and hearts to seek and encourage

those we can invite to the heavenly table. Amen
