God Awaits Your Return

English Audio Version

An adorable four-panel, hand-drawn storyboard recently appeared on a social media site.

A woman reaches her hand out to a dog. The dog barks, calling, “Welcome home.”

The woman asks, “What did you do today?”

The dog sits on its haunches and barks, saying, “I waited for you.”

The fourth and final panel is the most touching. The dog’s red tongue appears, and he looks up at the woman, saying, “You are all I have.”

We leave the house for the day, meet friends and coworkers, and we return. Our pet is a small part of our day.

We are every part of our pet’s day. Their lives are all about us.

God’s focus on us is just as powerful.

Isaiah 51:11 tells us:

“And the ransomed of the Lord shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”

Some people read this verse to celebrate God’s blessing when we return to him. It’s so much more. This verse tells us how much God anticipates our arrival when we remember how important we are to him.

God looks at us and says, “I waited for you.”

God blesses us because he loves us. We are his children, and that’s good enough reason for him.

When God is our everything, the way we see life changes completely.
