Growing impatient I headed back up in an attempt to expedite the process. Halfway up I called his name.
I heard the words, “coming” followed by the jingling of keys. I rounded the corner to see my husband standing in the same spot I left him, his gaze fixed fiercely on the game, his arm outstretched toward the door shaking a set of keys.
My husband’s stall tactic was quickly found out. No, he wasn’t coming. He just wanted me to think he was.
In the Bible, Jesus tells us He is coming back for us. That in His Father’s house are many dwelling places and that He is going to prepare a place for us.
John 14:3 “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I WILL come again and receive you to Myself that where I am, there you may be also.”
He WILL come. He’s not delayed or distracted watching the big game.
And, He’s not just rattling his keys at us. He is really coming!
