Like A Stone

I came home
Like a stone
And I fell heavy into your arms
These days of dust
Which we’ve known
Will blow away with this new sun
” (Mumford & Sons)

What an amazing picture of love and restoration!

I was once speaking at a church and we thought together about what we miss when we are away from home – hugs, home and hanging out with friends all came near the top of the list. Prayer can be like that:

“..he got up and went to his father.

“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” (Jesus Christ, Luke 15)

God does not expect you to develop a daily discipline of prayer. It’s more intimate than that. God simply wants to love you, in whatever way you are willing to allow yourself to be loved’ (Mark Yaconelli)

 To Reflect

Listen to the song at and pray as you do so.

Experience God’s love and acceptance.

Tell him about what’s on your mind and receive His love.
