Divine Love eagerly welcomes me home.
In the parable of the Prodigal Son, Jesus told of a wayward son’s reunion with his father. The son had left home as a restless youth and frivolously spent his inheritance. When he returned to ask forgiveness, his father welcomed him home with great joy and celebration. Like the young man in the story, I may have turned my attention away from God. But no matter how far I may have strayed, Divine Love always welcomes me home.
Through prayer, I reconnect with the presence of God. I feel the warm, comforting, unconditional love of my Creator. The riches of the kingdom are mine, and I am grateful. I am home, and I am at peace.
Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.—John 14:23
