Sometimes in my life I get the feeling that God is being more like a god and less like a father - like I’m getting some hard lessons minus the lovingness. This of course is not true, as God is God Our Father and is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. I know this more than ever when I look at the relationship between my son and I. I am reminded of the dynamic between Our Father’s love for us and what our perspective should be. It is a beautiful reminder of the trust I should have in Him, the simple belief that all He says is true, regardless of how I may feel at the time.
Isn’t this what God our Father wants for our relationship with Him?
To trust Him unwaveringly. To depend on Him 100%. To not only believe that He knows what is good for you but to believe that He is fundamentally and unshakably good, even when He is silent sometimes, even when it feels like He is somewhere else and even in the midst of being pruned. To still come to Him with the faith and heart of a child.
