He’s always there.

Some days I learn the most about the Lord from this sweet girl. Yesterday was one of those days. It was an overwhelming day. I woke up tired from the weekend knowing I had more on my schedule than hours in the day, even if I didn’t go to bed that night. The hours passed quickly, and the tasks at hand very slowly and full of frustration. But no matter that I was consumed in my work, this girl was persistent. She continued to ask for my attention. She continued conversation with me all day long, even though my responses were often short and distracted. She made sure to tell me she loved me time and again between the many “hey mom’s” I heard today. She continued to share her heart with me even though I didn’t share much of mine with her. She had other things to occupy her, but always came back to me. While I was digging in to finish a project, she was digging into life. As I looked up and snapped this picture I decided to stop for a bit and just dig right into life with her. Although we didn’t get to play together uninterrupted for long, our time together refreshed my soul.

You see the Lord was reminding me through my sweet girl of just what He’s like. No matter what I’m doing or how consumed I am in my day, He’s always there, seeking my attention. He continues His conversation with me even when I’m not fully available and responsive. He tells me how much He loves me, and reassured me of that with His constant presence throughout every day. He shares His heart with me about my life, even when I don’t always share the cares of my heart with Him. He is omnipresent and busy with His other children, yet is always with me. He is always working on my behalf, digging deeper into the recesses of my heart to move me closer to Him despite my human nature to move away. And when I finally look up from my busy schedule, I see him right there waiting to spend one on one time with me, just soaking in each others presence. That sweet time uninterrupted with the Lord always refreshes my soul and refocuses my heart and mind on Him.

Whatever your day holds, know the Lord is there. Take a minute to look up today and spend some uninterrupted time with him. His sweet spirit will strengthen you to continue on. ❤️

“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭13:5‬ ‭KJV‬‬
