Have you ever had one of those days when you felt like crawling up into the Lord’s lap, curling up as a child, being comforted and cared for, resting from life’s weary journey?
We’ve probably all seen Bible Story books with pictures of Jesus surrounded by children, with a few on His lap. The pictures are based on a story in Mark where Jesus said: “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these…And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.” (Mark 10:14-16 NIV)
Today was one such day for me as I battled fatigue and a small chest cold. During my devotions He said:
ENJOY MY LOVE
Today, we will take time to talk together,
for I have much to share with you.
I love you, My sweet child.
I want you to rest in My love, lean on My love,
and be helped by My love.
There isn’t any work for you today.
Try to enjoy whatever you can – especially my sunshine.
Always remember I love you.
Remembering He is Abba Father, Papa God, and that I can rest in His sublime presence is a wonderful realization in my life.
