I sometimes wonder if God longs for our attention just as much as we long for His. There are days my heart aches for no other reason than for just a touch of Heaven.
I watch my five year old daughter pedal on her bike as she makes circles in the driveway, her sweet voice rings out, “Watch me Daddy! Watch me!” I quickly respond, “I am!” and she yells, “Well…watch me MO!”
I am awestruck as I realize “that’s ME!” God do you see ME? This situation I am experiencing? I yell out, “Well, Lord, watch me more!”
Life can be so hard! The questions fill our mind does God see me? Does God know my name? Does God have a better ending to this story I’m currently living?
The answer is YES! Always…Yes! I’ll let Him take it from here…
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” ~ Jesus Mathew 6:26
“Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you. I’ve called your name. You’re mine.” Isaiah 43:1
God says: “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out — plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” Jeremiah 29:11
Today, look not only with your eyes for Him but with your heart. Today, maybe just for ten minutes…sit somewhere very quiet and whisper His name. Listen and be still. I believe He will speak. I believe He will show you what you need to do. I believe you will hear him say, “I love you more!”
The most amazing thing is we can have as much as we want of Him, our hearts cry may very well be “Daddy watch me!” and He says… “I am!”
“I am never out of your sight.” – Psalms 139:3
