A wee child stands at the window, and by the actions of the figure it is easy to tell the lil one is eagerly awaiting, watching and waiting for someone to appear. Suddenly! Before you can blink an eye, the tiny figure dashes down the steps and out the door, not stopping until it is in the arms of the one whom they have watched and waited for, the Father figure, the daddy whom they love so dearly. With the eyes fixed upon the familiar face of the one she trusts, the wee one begins to tell of the days adventures.
Have you seen the above story unfold? Friends, let me tell you it is such a beautiful thing to see, and it brings tears to my eyes every time I see it. The moment that Little One sees her Daddy, Nothing will stop her until she is in her Hero’s arms, safe and secure, it is with reckless abandon that she runs to Him.
Do you know? Do you believe that the Heavenly Father does the exact same for you? He awaits daily in eager anticipation with arms open wide, just patiently waiting, but the choice is yours, will you run to Him with complete abandon? Will you run and not stop until you are safely in His arms, where you know you will be safe and secure?
“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.” ~ 1 John 3:1
Do you hear him beckoning you? Asking you to come to Him, to be in communion with Him, He so desires an intimate relationship with you.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. ~John 10:27
My friend, just as the little girl did, I encourage to run to The Heavenly Father with complete abandon and allow Him to hold you in His loving arms and share with you the plans He has for you.
And while your earthly dad may not have nurtured and cared for your heart like He should have, if this is the case, I am sorry for the pain and rejection you have felt. The Father will, I promise He absolutely will care for you and your heart in the most loving way, He will heal the wounds, the pain, and brokenness. He can be Trusted! Will you allow Him to? Will you Trust Him?
He knows you better then you know yourself! He wants to heal every part of you! He wants to make you whole!
“O Lord , You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways.”
