Disillusioned with God? Feel like he has let you down?
This reminds me of the little kid who decides he is fed up with Mom and Dad and is going to run away from home. He packs his bags and heads out the door down the long driveway. When he gets to the end of the driveway he pauses. As he looks back at his house he begins to realize that home is the place where his toys are, his comfy bed is. It’s where MaC & ChEeSe is served just the way he likes it, along with his favorite chocolate milk. Home is where his mom’s warm embrace and dad’s strong protective arms are. Turning back towards his house he decides to just go home.
Jesus’ disciples had a similar experience. After a multitude of people left Jesus because they were offended by His teaching, Jesus asked his disciples if they were going to leave Him also. Peter, made a profound statement, “To whom shall we go? You have the WoRdS of LiFe.” (John 6:67-68) Regardless how uncomfortable life could be at times, what was the alternative? Jesus had the words of life.
As Easter approaches maybe God seems distant and you don’t understand why life has turned out the way it has. Maybe you have unanswered prayer. I wish life never went this way, but unfortunately at times it does. That’s why God’s given us FaiTh. He knew we would need it in the dark nights, deep valleys and stormy blast. The times where understanding eludes us, life doesn’t make sense, and we can’t see our way. It’s in these times that more than ever we need to JuSt Go HoMe.
