Truly my soul finds rest in God. Psalm 62:1 (NIV)
My daughter recently sent me a video of my grandson. He had just gotten up from his nap and as they reached the bottom of the stairs he heard his dad's voice. He ran from the bottom of the stairs to the room where his dad stood. As he ran he was calling out excitedly with noises (he's not old enough to talk yet).
When he got to his dad, he was scooped up and hugged. Then, he just sat there. He was content to be in his father's arms. Content to be near him. He didn't want to do anything. He just wanted to sit there and be held.
This reminded me of us. When we learn to recognize God's voice and we hear it, we run. We run toward that voice because we want to hear it again and again. We want to be scooped up and held. And when we are sitting in God's arms, we are content to just be.
There is no better place in the world to be than sitting, content, in my Father's arms.
