Oct 14 – Missing His Dad

I recently read the fascinating story of a little boy who loved his Daddy very much and was sad and lonely when his father was away from home. His mother kept a picture of her husband on the wall. Often the little boy would look at his father’s picture and one day he surprised his mother by saying, “Mommy, I wish Daddy would come out of that frame.” Sometimes, when we experience difficult circumstances, we are like that little boy, wishing our Heavenly Father were near at hand. On one occasion, Jesus said to one of His disciples, “ whoever has seen me has seen the Father.” Another New Testament writer put it as follows- “In these last days, God has spoken to us by His Son…the express image of His person.” If today you are burdened down with problems that are beyond your strength, take comfort from the gospel song that says, , “Is your burden heavy as you bear it all alone? Reach out to Jesus, He’s reaching out to you.”
