No Room in the Inn ?
a picture in nature of a parent's love
I was walking in a local park the other day and came across this Mother Goose
with a little one sleeping beside her....
I thought it was cute until I saw that there was a baby tucked under the mother's wing and wondered why the outside duckling
had not snuggled safely under the wing as well ....
But as I was to find out -
it was because there was no room in the inn !
Last one 'to bed' sleeps outside the wing!!
Take a look at the video !
We are moving into summer vacation time when families jump into the car
and travel to far off places.
I'm sure you, like me, at the end of a long day's travel have looked for a place to stop for the night and found only "No Vacancy" signs.
It is a discouraging feeling to know there is no room in the inn for you to rest.
Perhaps you happened upon our blog this morning
like the little duckling,
are on the outside looking in ... feeling that you don't really belong...
not even sure that you could....
it seems everyone else is always ahead of you...
that the 'Inn' is always full by the time you get there.
I want you to know ..
that God the Perfect Father is welcoming to all who wish to come .
The Inn of God's Love ALWAYS has room for one more...
no one need sleep outside the door.
Call on the Name of Jesus ...
He will always hear and answer.
His love, His forgiveness, His strength, His comfort --
whatever you have need of He offers to you!
And best of all ... if you but follow Him, as a little duckling,
He will lead you in the way that you should go!
"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under the shadow of Your wings,
"My sheep (ducklings) hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me."
