Father Hold Me

Tonight on the way home from great dinner and fellowship with friends I heard a song on the radio that brought a childhood memory to mind. At one point in the song the words go "Father hold me, hold me" . As I heard this the memory when a was about 4 or 5 years old popped into my mind of sitting on my Pappy's lap. I loved sitting on his lap when they would come visit me. We even have home movies of me sitting on my Pappy's lap. I felt so special my Pappy holding me on his lap.
So this got me to thinking......
I love being with children. The littler the better. I love cuddling with them. I love holding them and having a chat. I started thinking about when does a child wants to be held and what they feel. I child like to be held to be close to you. I child like to be held to feel secure. A child likes to be held for comfort when they don't feel well. I child likes to be held to have your full attention. A child likes to be held for your strengh when they are tired.

I came to this conclusion I want my Father to hold me. Hold me Lord.

Yes, me too. These days I just want to rest my head against his heart and feel His great arms of love around me. How precious and miraculous that He can do that for each one of us - just as though we were His only child. I love that thought.
