Your Heart’s True Home

I wanted to share 2 things from church this morning.  The first was from our discipleship class on prayer.  The second was shown in our service.  It’s a description of Jesus, who really is indescribable.

The Lord is inviting you and me to come home, to come home to where we belong, to come home to that for which we were created.  His arms are stretched out wide to receive us. His heart is enlarged to take us in.  For too long we have been in a far country: a country of noise and hurry and crowds, a country of climb and push and shove, a country of frustration and fear and intimidation.  And He welcomes us home, home to serenity and peace and joy, home to friendship and fellowship and openness, home to intimacy and acceptance and affirmation.
-Richard Foster in his book, “Prayer:  Finding Your Heart’s True Home”
