It’s just like when we go and visit a grandparent in a nursing home or pick up the phone and converse with grandma/grandpa! Their face lights up, showing they are just delighted to be around their loved ones or hear their loved ones voice(s). And, we know, for sure, they love the visit because he/she makes it very clear! The holding on tight to their visitor’s hands, when it’s time to leave, combined with a little sarcastic comment will give that away! 😛 And, even though grandma/grandpa doesn’t remember everything, the fact that that visit touched his/her heart in a way that made their face light up, makes it all the worthwhile.
This is a just a little example of how Papa feels when we reach out to Him. We may go days, months, years without any communication with The Big Guy; we may sin and lose hope, or fear Him. But, it’s never too late to accept the fact that the Universe is a magical existence. And, it would be a shame, honestly, to not utilize The Greatest Resource known to man. It’s a “no-brainer”, if you ask me.
Let’s have The Greatest get delighted, just like our grandparents. And, that’s easy to do. Try just saying, “Hello.”. The conversing with Him should be just as natural as any conversation we have with people we trust. And, just like our grandparents, Papa doesn’t like to be ignored. We are His children, after all.
God knows our hearts. One place that is almost always a guarantee that our hearts will be happy is if we spend time outdoors…looking around, taking it all in, and smiling internally and externally, thankful for all the beauty that surrounds us (God).
So, let’s take a walk and, have Papa “perk up His ears” when He hears us speak to him. He’ll be delighted that He is remembered and valued.
Hope your day is full of smiles,
Psalm 147:1 – 11 The Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.
“Dear Lord, it thrills us that You want to have a relationship with us! Thank You for the opportunity to learn of You through the Bible and to talk with You in prayer.”
