I remember vividly one day as I was on my way to pick up my child from daycare, I got caught in some heavy traffic. I began to get terribly anxious because I knew the daycare was closing soon and I had to get to my child before he worried or worse, felt forgotten. Those minutes seemed like forever as I inched through the traffic to finally arrive at the daycare. I ran inside to find my child holding back tears. As I approached him, I embraced him so tightly. I wanted him to feel secure. In that moment, he let it all out in relief knowing that I was there to pick him up and that I had not forgotten him at all.
For any child, it is a horrible feeling when they don’t know where their parents are. I was troubled to think he might have believed I had actually forgotten him.
In the same way, many of us have also felt at moments that we are forgotten by God. As we continue our study of the end times and Jesus’ return, we will see that God will never forsake us or abandon us.
