Missing You



Then He led them out of the city as far as Bethany, where He raised His hands and blessed them. As He was blessing them, He departed from them and was taken up into Heaven. Luke 24:50.

After saying this, He was taken up to Heaven as they watched Him, and a cloud hid Him from their sight. They still had their eyes fixed on the sky as He went away, when two men dressed in white suddenly stood beside them and said, “Galileans, why are you standing there looking up at the sky? This Jesus, who was taken from you into Heaven, will come back in the same way that you saw Him go to Heaven.” Acts 1:9.

A few days after the Resurrection Jesus was raised to Heaven in full sight of His disciples.

Can you imagine how they must have felt?

They’d been with Him for three years or so. Saw Him preach and heal the sick. Witnessed His arrest, death and Resurrection. And now … He was gone.

They must have missed Him very badly as they walked back to their homes. Confusion, fear and doubts must have crossed their minds several times.

He is gone … and He is missed.

Missing somebody is a sign that their presence had an influence on your life, your well-being and your happiness.

Their absence now has created a void in your life. An emptiness, and a longing to be with them once again.

We’ve all missed someone at one time or another in our lives. It is usually someone who has been kind to us.

Are we ever missed when we are no longer there? Have we done something nice to someone who will remember us and miss our presence in their lives?

  1. Oh my goodness! Now THAT's a great challenge. Honestly, right now I'd have to answer, "I don't know."
    That would make a wonderful New Years resolution … but then, why wait for New Years? Tomorrow's not promised to any of us.

    1. We can all be a power for good to other people. A person who improves and enriches others' lives. A person to be missed when no longer there.

      God bless, Mevely.

  2. In our family we tell each other "I love you" every time we talk to one another or see each other. I do know that I will be missed when I am gone...because I raised my family the way that I as raised with love and caring. I miss all those that I grew up with and I feel that my family will feel the same way.

    Beautiful pot Victor and food for thought.

    God's Blessings ✝

      I am sure that you do have a beautiful pot in the kitchen cupboard somewhere but I meant POST!

      Should have been "was" raised :)

  4. Will we be missed when we're gone? Have we lived lives that reflect the love of Jesus to others? Great things to ponder, Victor.

  5. I have considered if I will be missed as I have missed others. What I need to do is be more concerned about the other person and what I have to contribute to their well being. I'll not know how much I'm missed, but I can aid others in their journey...being more selfless and less selfish. Thank you for this post! Have a grand week!

  6. If we are kind and loving to people, I think we will be missed. I miss lots of people because of the times we shared with each other, the words we spoke to each other. Kind and loving people are missed every single day. Remembering them always is a tribute to their lives here on earth and the moments we spent with them.

  7. I agree with Bill … Kind and loving people are missed every single day.
    I also agree with Jan, it is so important to tell those you love that you love them … I've come across quite a few people who have lost their loved ones and one of the things they sometimes say is, I hope they know I loved them … I didn't say it that often.

    Great Sunday post Victor, thank you.

    All the best Jan
