Oh, the anticipation of that most delightful day of a young girl’s life!
I remember it well – – thinking for sure the Lord would return before I had experienced this grand event. Hours of preparation included a house filled with bridal magazines to peruse, candles, soft white tulle, shiny fabrics and pages of planning notes – all an integral part of this magnificent journey. Alas, it came to pass, and I was well rewarded for all the years of anticipation!
Almost every woman’s desire after marriage is the birth of one’s offspring.
Nine months seem to creep by as the anxious parents dream of the new bundle of joy that is coming their way. Bottles, diapers, tears? Not a problem that we can’t handle. Nursery décor is happily furnished as well as infant clothing, bedding, toys, and basic needs. The anticipation is almost unbearable, but soon the awaited day rewards the parents with a fabulous bundle of joy! A child like no other! Surely a genius; most certainly the most beautiful baby ever born!
The greatest of all anticipations!
Are you just as excited today about His return as you were when you first met Him? Don’t lose your fervor and zeal for this magnificent day! It is going to happen just as we are told in God’s Word. It is so easy to let the busyness of our everyday routines smother our anticipation. The enemy of our soul wants us to believe that it is only a myth and will never transpire. Don’t be fooled; He is coming soon! St. John 14:2, 3 promises,
“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am there ye may be also.”
Oh, I can hardly wait!
