I just love it when God compares my behavior to that of my six-year old’s! Today, I was sitting (hiding!) in my bedroom when the little one was looking for me. I heard him calling “Mom?” and answered, but he was so busy yelling for me, he couldn’t hear me. He clumped down the steps, still calling my name. Just seconds later, I could hear him stomping back up the steps. Finally, he opened my door and discovered me. “There you are!” he said. I laughed while telling him that I heard him and answered, but he went downstairs anyway. “I didn’t hear you!” he said. I dealt with his pressing matter then sent him on his way. Then, I felt God pricking my heart…
See, I had a not so very good day. And I was calling for God all day. “Where are You?” I asked him. When my boy left, God spoke to my heart “See….you’re like him. You’ve been so busy calling my name, you forgot to listen for my voice. I’ve been right here.”
Wow. What a good God we serve! I’m so thankful for Him and the way He speaks!
Be blessed and show somebody some love!
