I recently had the blessed privilege of sharing the day with our almost
two-year old granddaughter, she kept sharing her affirmation,
"Daddy's coming, daddy's coming," adamantly, positive, with
total trust and confidence! She would play a while, then stop to command attention and repeat her
declaration, as if to say, "Now, I already told you, 'daddy's
coming, daddy's coming.'" We enjoyed a tasty homemade lunch and during our conversation, she reminded me
(you guessed it), "Daddy's coming, daddy's coming."
She thoroughly enjoyed her sweet and peaceful nap, swinging,
bird-watching, rock collecting, singing, handprint painting, eating farm fresh peaches
and red ripe sweet cherries, and dancing--all beautiful and delightful,
yet did NOT erase her thoughts, intentional focus, affirmative proclaiming, and anticipation of
daddy's coming, daddy's coming.
Praise GOD for this trusting childlike reminder of such a profound truth as it relates to our Heavenly Father! We can rest assured that Daddy's Word is
truth; HE is faithful and will do just what He said. All the promises of the LORD are yes and amen.
Her message spoke to, convicted, and ministered to my heart. I continue to need promptings of the priority of my eternal focus,
my Heavenly Father is coming! Amid pleasures, opportunities to serve, trials, difficulties, pain, disappointments, or daily duties, may we remind others and ourselves,
Daddy's coming to our aid, rescue, and side. Yes, He is coming back for us to be with HIM
This little child is indeed a carrier of the true message from the Lord to her
G'ma. God speaks!
