I've been slacking in my time with the Lord lately. I haven't made it a priority and find that other things creep in and take the time that the Lord so richly deserves. Why is it that everything else can become "so important" and He gets pushed to the side?
Today I made a point to sit down with my son and color with him. He followed me around the house while I put things away, made my coffee and he insisted that he not begin until I sat & colored with him. He got all his supplies out, laid them nicely on the table and waited. Even now while I type this, he has stopped his coloring and is waiting....waiting for me. "Are you done typing yet, Mom? Let's do shapes now!" As I was coloring with him I would put my color down and sit back in relaxing coffee drinking and he would say, "Come on Mom, let's do it again!"
I wonder in my current slacking relationship with the Lord if He's sitting there waiting for me...with colors in hand. Waiting to show me richly from His Word and speak to my heart with all His brightness. Wanting to express to me, "Earen, let's do this again soon! Are you done with everything else you "think" you need to do?"
All He longs for is our hearts and a relationship with Him. I can't imagine going a day without spending time with my own precious children & yet the Lord, my Father has had to go many days without me & me without Him. It's time to let the coloring begin again.....
