Somewhere in the moments between dreaming and waking I heard a voice gently call to me.
"Little One, receive my blessing," he said in soft yet commanding tone. As I looked up I saw Him standing before me with outstretched arms...
Effortlessly, I was lifted into his embrace. As he drew me to Himself I became like a three year old child. One arm naturally wrapped around his neck and with the other my thumb found its way to my mouth. With my cheek resting comfortably upon his chest, I nestled my head under his chin.
All my fears, all the pain just disappeared in the presence of so much incredible love. Divine peace flooded my being and permeated every corner of my heart. I knew exactly where I was for I had been here many times before. Safe at last, I was "home" in the harbor of my daddy's embrace.
I don't know how long I was there as time seemed irrelevant.
" Little One , you must go back now, I have work for you to do..."
To which I replied,
" Daddy, your hands are so strong
and they make me feel so safe,
may I sleep in them so I don't get scared ? "
He just smiled that knowing beautiful smile and said,
" Little One, you are always in My hands ... "
Each night just before I fall asleep I see a giant hand rise up out of the ocean. In that moment there is no fear, no pain and time ceases to exist... and I jump, as only a small and trusting child would, into the awaiting hands of my loving Father. Enveloped by His divine love, blanketed with perfect peace...
" Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not; for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, whosoever will not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall in no wise enter therein. "
Luke chap.18 vs. 16-17
Our Lord Jesus Christ longs for each and every one of His children... to hold us, to heal us, to love us as only He can. If you will open your heart to Him, He is only too happy to show you just how dearly loved you truly are.
I pray that none are so grown up that they forget how to be little...
