“Why do I long for more, and yet not know
exactly what the ‘more’ is?”
“Why am I here?” “What was I made for?”
“Is there more to Life than this?”
Could it be that God the Father has the answers
to these questions?
The age-old saying tells us that we all start out as a twinkle in our father’s eye. Could it be that the physical mirrors the spiritual? Could it be that we have our beginning in the Heavenly Father’s eye? I’ve heard it said that the first English word most of us learn to speak as children is “Da Da.” Perhaps, that’s not a coincidence. Maybe, just maybe, God the Father is speaking a message to us from our earliest days.
Could it be that the first word of our mouths expresses something far deeper and more significant — the heart cry of our souls? A longing for the Father?
Blaise Pascal, the renowned French mathematician, physicist, and philosopher, once said, “There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.” I would put it this way, “There is a Father-shaped vacuum in the heart of every lost son and daughter made in His image which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Perfect Father, made known to us personally and intimately by Jesus, the Perfect Son.”
Could it be that what we’re all really looking for, deep down inside, is the way home?
Could it be so simple, and yet at the same time, so profound? Are we — at the core of our masculine and feminine souls — longing for a way back home to the embrace of the Father? Could that be the “more” we all instinctively know we’re looking for? That settled sense of identity, knowing who we are as loved sons and daughters of a perfect Father? Could Life — as it was always meant to be known and understood and experienced and lived — really be found in our Heavenly Father’s embrace?
I believe so — with all my heart.
I hope that the Story the Heavenly Father wants to tell you will help answer these questions. I pray that the story, the images, and the truth on these pages will help you in your spiritual quest. May they help you find your way home. May the Father’s story become your story, too. After all, there’s no place like home.
Know this above all else: the Heavenly Father
wants you — now!
May we meet one day, at home in the Father’s embrace,
