My daughter, Lorelai, is 18 months old and is the cutest most adorable and lovable little girl ever. When her older brother, Bowman, was born I was not sure how I would be as a dad, but both of my children have captured my heart and I love them dearly. Being a dad has taught me so much.
Recently Lorelai has started screaming my name whenever I get home from work and running to me saying “DADDY”. This got me to thinking about how we relate to God a lot of the time. When Lorelai runs to me she just knows I am her daddy. She doesn’t know how I am her dad and what went on biologically for me to be her dad. She just knows I am her daddy. She does not know how I work to make money to pay bills and buy groceries and diapers and clothes and toys for her and her brother. She just knows I am her daddy. She doesn’t know how I watch my diet and stay active and healthy to be around a long time for her. She just knows I am her daddy. You see to her the whys and the whats and the hows don’t matter. All that matters is I am her daddy. It is that simple for her.
Shouldn’t it be that simple for us and our relationship to God? I mean why do we try to make it so complicated when He is our dad. Perhaps today we just need to remember that He is our dad and run to Him screaming out his name!
