My mother has this cute little dog named Angel. Angel follows my Mom where ever she goes. The little dog is so close on her heels that if Mom takes a step backwards, she'll be tripping over her. Any time my Mom leaves the house, the dog's only thought is to wait on her return, keeping constant vigil in hopes Mom will soon be home. When my mother returns, the dog rejoices, jumping up and down and yipping with pleasure.
My prayer is to be like little Angel. I want to follow on the heels of my Lord Jesus so close that he's tripping over me. I want to be so focused on his return that it's my constant hope that He comes to us soon. I want to rejoice always in his spirit that he left with us until his return. Lord, let me be as faithful as a little dog.
