Why is it so easy to forget that Daddy God is here 24/7, and He ain’t going nowhere no time too soon.
Why is it so easy to forget those times when we thought we were losing our minds, that it was Daddy God who calmed the inner turmoil and anxieties deep within us?
Why is it so easy to forget that Daddy God is there 24/7, watching, protecting, and providing for his kids – those who have a relationship with Him and, what I call his “kids in waiting”- those who have not entered into relationship with Him.
Why it is so easy to forget that He feels our pain, anguish, disappointments, fears, and apprehensions,
Why is it so easy to forget that Daddy God prepares our paths even before we embark on our journey?
Why is it so easy to forget that Daddy God is always around caring for us, loving us, and cheering us on?
WHY IS IT…
Maybe it is the lack of touch.
Maybe it is that the face-to-face encounter is not there.
Maybe it is the absence of “Daddy hugs.”
Maybe it is hearing an audible voice and communication between a father and his son or daughter.
Many reasons and explanations can be proposed and argued to answer this question, “Why Is It?”
However, after all the dialogue has silenced and the questions linger in the air, it comes down this: trust, reliance, belief, and hope in the God of our faith!
Yes, I am a mushy person that desires the “touchy-feely” kind of stuff. How about you?
While I cannot have the touchy-freely” kind of stuff, I am reminded of something I wrote a year or so ago. It was entitled, “Sitting in the Lap of God.”
I reference to this because, I believe more and more that Daddy God knows how to give us those kind of moments of being ever so close to Him, sitting on His lap if you will, or looking into His eyes through the windows of our spirits.
More than that, taking His hand to wipe away our tears or whispering in our ears, “it’s gonna be alright because I am here with you always – Daddy God got your back, front, and sides.”
Oh, to have one of those encounters right now!
So . . . what is the answer to this inquiry?
Well . . . I believe it is all about CHOICE! We can choose to trust, rely, believe and hope in God, OR . . . we can depend on our own strength, and become doubtful and hopeless.
I choose to “trust, rely, believe, and hope in God.” How about you?
TRUST: Trust in the fact that Daddy God is and will always here for you NO MATTER WHAT! Like a “Ruthless, Relentless” Trust with the determination to hold on to it like our very life depends on it.
RELY IN AND ON HIM: Just as we need air to breathe, food and water to survive, even more CHOOSE to put complete confidence and reliance in Daddy God . . . Let us declare that…He is the air that WE desire to breathe!
BELIEVE: Believe even when things look doomed. Believe when others or you tell yourself, “I can’t make it,” “it too hard,” or “I don’t have what it takes” because reliance and strength comes from Daddy God and not from ourselves.
HOPE: Against ALL odds and circumstances, HOPE says, “all things remain possible.”
