I was laying on the couch tonight while trying to entice Caleb (our 2 year old) to come snuggle with me. I knew I could run after him and grab him, carrying him over my shoulder back to the couch, but we all know that forced snuggles are never the same as the real deal. It’s not near as special when they are kicking and squirming and doing everything they can to escape my grasp.
It made me think about how passionately God desires our attention and how we often push our time with Him to the back burner. It’s almost like we don’t understand the lengths that God went to, in order to make a way for us to have a real relationship with Him.
This evening I have had my thinking renewed in the area of the time I spend with my Heavenly Father. I absolutely love to snuggle with my kids, and the love I have for my kids isn’t even a fraction of the love God has for His.
Let’s be reminded today that it is within these special times with our Father, that the problems of the day melt like wax, and the cares of this world drift away.
Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. (James 4:8a MSG)
