He screamed and tore across the living room into my safe arms!! I quickly hit the power button, and scooped my scared little monkey into my arms. It took about 5 minutes for his little heart to stop pounding, and then I began to chuckle!
I chuckled because I knew the source of the problem....a simple stereo speaker!
I chuckled because I knew the answer to the problem.....the power button!
I chuckled because I'm so glad my little guy knows he can run to me when he's in trouble!
Don't we do the same thing with our Heavenly Father??
We get curious about a certain path in life, and we make a few decisions. Those choices don't turn out as expected and we scream! We realize we've made a huge mistake. We've taken the wrong road. We have no clue how to fix what we've done.
So we run.......back to the One who knows everything......
He already knows the source of our heartache and confusion!
He already knows the answer to the question marks in our mind!
He smiles because we have chosen to run to Him....the Almighty God who can scoop us into His arms and keep us safe from trouble.
Proverbs 18:10 "The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe."
