I got a call from my son this morning. He’s just starting a career in the U.S. Army. I am a retired Army officer. He called just to let me know what was going on with all this new stuff he’s experiencing. Most of it I too experienced in a distant past. It was so good to hear from him and to hear about all that is happening in his life. I was thrilled and so honored to be included in his day. I was able to take it in and give a few tidbits of thought and wisdom to him since I’ve already been there.
It got me thinking. Do you think our heavenly Father feels the same way when we come to Him? I do! I think he is equally thrilled and honored when we include Him in our day. When we come to Him and tell him what is going on in our lives and listen to what He has to say about it.
Take time to give Him a call today and let Him in on all that is happening in your day, He’ll love it because He loves you. Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV) ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’
Always call on the Lord, and let him know how was your day…
A father and son relationship… that is what is all about!
When I can’t understand God and what He’s doing in my life and / or the lives of others around me, I try to run it through the grid of a Father-child relationship … and then I have a better idea of who He is and what He wants from me and w/ me.
Thanks for great reminder / object lesson.
And God bless you both for your service to our country.
