Today’s Daily Light
You and Your Heavenly Father…It’s all about the relationship…love and joy
(This is just straight from my heart and emotions this morning…no edits…no real thought…just is happening in real time 😊)
As is my custom…I was sitting in the first light of this new day…at my kitchen island…cup of coffee in hand…and spending time with my Heavenly Father. What I wish to convey to you this morning…relates to what I perceive as the God-intended ‘joy’…. and ….’enjoyment’ in the relationship between you and the Father.
On this morning, for whatever reason, Father grabbed my heart and attention early…grabbed control of my spirit mind..and pulled me straight into His lap to just snuggle and talk.
The scene of this I wish for you to feel and see…would be best portrayed in your personal understanding of that of a small child doing what small children do…they stir awe, love, and wonder in the eyes and hearts of their parents. I think of the power of love that exists in the parent-child relationship…the ongoing experience of awe and wonder. I had that when my children when were small…and all throughout their years and it continues for me today when I see them on any and every occasion…if I were a dog…my tail would wag sooo hard and fast that it feels like it is going to tip me over 😊. It is the same for me these days when I see my grand kids…to share in their time of innocent inquisitive natures…to have them yell my name …” ‘Pa-pa’…watch me do this…watch me …’Pa-pa”…let’s ride the ____…’Pa-pa..why is ______” and the new little guy..Sim..not yet 2…OMG…still has tons of that sweet baby sugar-cream smell and feel to every inch of his cuteness….and he has knows my name and knows that I am something that belongs to his little heart…and he squeals with delight when he sees me…and he gets sooo excited to be the center of my attention…… and it is ‘all of THAT’…friends… ALL of THAT experience of love-joy…mutually shared between two individuals…. which I speak of in this morning that expresses exactly the type of relationship that our Heavenly Father…our Great Poppa God…desires between ‘you’ and Him…exactly!
Point is….your Heavenly Father…your eternal Poppa God…loves you more than you love your kids, your parents, your siblings, your grand kids… He created you to hear you say… “Father…I love You…I want to just climb up into Your lap and snuggle…as I sit there this morning watching the work of Your hands…Your amazing power on demonstration in another amazing sunrise…watching the colors and hews of nature and light explode before me…listening to the morning chorus of bugs and birds that Your summertime season always brings…my sense are overwhelmed with the reality that it is You…my Father…my eternal loving Poppa…and i run and dance before you and say to you that I ‘see’ You and I just love You sooo much and want to climb into your arms because I know You are always there with Your arms wide open…that your eyes gleam with excitement to know that I want to have Your attention and be with You and have You watch me..enjoy me..that great big lap of Yours always ready and waiting and always has a place just for me…and I know that You get more excited than I do when I think of You this way..when I desire to be with You this way…BECAUSE…You are the one that created all of these ideas, feelings, senses, emotions, realities…It is You in ‘All of That‘…and I will forever run into Your arms because I know that is what You desire the most from me/us. And especially when I am weary and worn and have sinned…when I hurt…when I am confused or lonely…on every occasion when I am at my worst…I WILL run to You because I know that is what You created me to do…to be in Your arms..to be ‘with’ You eternally.
Oh…Poppa…Oh…Poppa….I see You…I feel You…and I hear You say… “and I see you and feel you and love you more than you can possibly understand or know.” Ahhhhhhh
