Surrounded By the Warmth of Truth

My youngest was home from school with a bug...well not a spider or an ant...a flu like bug! Winter tried to sneak in early and my son was trying to get warm from waking up in a one hundred year old drafty house. Just as he was waking, the dryer buzzed. I grabbed a "hot out of the dryer" hooded sweatshirt and ran upstairs with it warming my hands like mittens along the way. As I reached his room I said, "Close your eyes and lift your hands!" and without questioning me he did just that! I slipped the warm sweat shirt over his little head and down his raised arms. A precious sigh of comfort and gratitude filled the room. When his head popped out of the hood opening like a jack-in-the-box, the most grateful face was there to smile at me.

Do we allow God to do this for us? Do we trust God enough to close our eyes, lift our hands in praise to Him for the warmth of His love and His timely provision?

You and I must remember, the creator of the universe knows when we have a "bug" or a need. He knows when we are struggling. He sees through a Father's eyes when His children are lonely or sad. I can picture Him running to me to warm me with His perfect love. Can You?

Here's hoping today you will feel the warmth as you are surrounded by the truth that Christ Died for you, God loves you, and if you accept these truths into your heart...HE is with you.
The Bible says, "If you confess with you mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, then you Will be saved." Don't you think if He thought you were worth dying for He would want to hear from you now and again? Close your eyes and lift your hands friends...warmth is on the way!
Hot cocoa anyone?
