Have your kids ever fallen asleep in the wrong spot and so you pick up their limp bodies and carry them? As a dad, I enjoy those times. Often, I will nestle their sleepy heads against my chest and hold them tight as I carry them where they are supposed to be.

If you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior you need to know also that you have a Heavenly Father who wants to scoop you up out of the places where you are most helpless, hold you tight and carry you to where you are supposed to be. Often, people think that God is far off and is too busy to pay attention to us. Others think he is some mean supreme being up in the sky. On the contrary, he loves us so much that He Himself came to us so that we can have a relationship with Him... so that we can truly call Him Father. He desires a relationship with you built on trust and love. This is similar to the relationship that every father desires.

Do you really have a relationship with the Father? Have you really let him take control & pick you up off the ground? Do you look towards other things to come along and help? Do not resist His loving arms.

Be blessed.
