Last week I wrote about our wonderful, omnipresent God. Yes God will always bend down to listen, but how often do we come to Him with the heart of a child~ just as my precious grandchildren came to me....
And amidst the chaos of that Sunday morning service,
the pastor’s wife bent down to listen to her grandchild.
The child who didn’t notice the chaos,
That didn’t notice the “to do’s”,
or the time they took to tell me.
They simply came as a child with a need.
A child with faith that the one who loves them so much,
would surely bend down to listen~
and to love~
and to make everything okay.
Oh that I would just go to Him~
holding nothing back.
Oh that I had such faith in my Father!
Oh that I could put aside every weight and
fear, every worry and anxiety.
Oh that I could for a moment forget the
“to do’s” and the schedule,
the chaos and responsibilities.
Oh that I would come as a child, placing it all in His hands~
and let it be just me and my Savior.
Allowing His love to wash over me,
and every other thing around me
disappear in His presence.
Resting in His love.
Believing~without a doubt~
that He would make everything okay.
I am that child.
You are that child.
Come as you are, just as a child.
Come to your Daddy.
And just as if you are His only child in this world,
He will always, always bend down to listen and to answer and to make everything okay.
Take us back dear Father~
Take us back to that child like faith.
