Daddy, can I come too?
Just as I stayed in my daddy's pocket as a child, my Heavenly Father wants me to be even closer. Where He goes, He wants me to follow. Where I go, He is right next to me, never leaving me alone. The only difference I have learned is that I want Him steering the way while I sit next to Him. It took me a long time to give up that steering wheel. Sometimes I forget and I try to take it back, thinking I know the way and an easier route, but He gently removes my hands.
Are you struggling today? Is this old world getting you down? Losing your way and trying to keep up? Grab hold of the Lord's pocket and hang on tight. Stay close and He will be that safe keeper. Just open your heart and ask Him, "Daddy, can I come to?" He has been waiting to hear those words from you. Ever cross the street into an unknown land and feel as though you were not alone? That was Him, forever watching His child and never letting you out of His sight. His hand has been on you the whole time. You will find no place safer than the arms of our Savior. Reach out to Him today. You might just find something special in that pocket of His. He has just been waiting for the perfect moment to give you the gift of all gifts.
Romans 8:35-39 "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or peril, or sword? As it is written: For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
