You’ll Make It Home

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to Him. Psalm 24:1 NLT

 My first hunting outing with my dad, was dove hunting.

I was five. We lived in Waco, and drove to West (where the explosion was). My dad’s hometown was West. 

Amazing I hunt as much as I do today, because on this first trip, as

Print from my dad-reminded him of my brother, him and me.

we were walking through the high grass I got stung on my stomach (actually “tummy” – if you’re under six it’s a tummy) by a couple of hornets. 

I started crying, we went back to the car, and my dad pointed the a/c vent at my stomach to try to relieve the pain. We drove a bit, saw a tree in a pasture, and my dad “Why don’t we go sit under that tree? We might see some doves.” I agreed.

Dad’s Belgium made Browning 12 Citori…and hand biter.

We got out, and had to climb over a barb wire fence. He lifted me over first, then he began to climb over. He was holding his Browning 12. He had it open for safety. But as he climbed over, it got hung up, and closed on the skin between his thumb and hand.

 It cut through the skin, began bleeding quite a bit. He picked me back up, took me back to his mom’s house where he soaked his hand in kerosene (country antiseptic).

Here’s the point:
Stung multiple times.
Dad’s hand hurt and bleeding.
Great day gone bad.

I never felt afraid.

I hurt. A lot! I was upset. A lot! I cried. A bit.

But was never concerned about my ultimate safety.
Never worried I’d survive.
I knew, that at the end of the day-I knew…everything would be OK. 

And! And! And!….get this: I was absolutely certain I would make it home.  Because my dad would carry me there. 

And in Christ, it is the same with you. 

God is sovereign.  
He’s in absolute control – and He will take care of you. You might hurt sometime. You might be upset. But just like me as a little kid:

 You will be safe in the arms of God. 
You will survive in the arms of God, 
You will be OK
 and at the end of the day
Everything will be OK
AND….you..will..make it…home. 
Because your heavenly Father will carry you there.

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to Him. Psalm 24:1 NLT

God Speed,

Pastor David

  1. Thank you so much for this reminder. Sunday's message was wonderful and I needed to hear it so badly. No matter how badly I feel certain days, I know it is only temporary (although it feels like foreverrrrr at the time) but, one day, my Daddy will bring me home…bring us all home. I want that badly…even ask for it sooner than later, but a dear friend reminded me that we still have a lot of work to do here to fulfil His mission…there are so many that still need to KNOW Christ…and them come on board to Make Him Known…


  2. Times and times I'm upset as being an actual singer mom, and many times I think it's worthless and … No other way. Being with them. God's greatest love shines on me and passes to my children. Still need to be strong.
    This message empowers me and I truly appreciate it.
