My wife and I have a small dog named Scooter, and he is a little shy. Since he is only 5 pounds he somehow knows that he could get hurt very easily, so he is always cautious.
Scooter is 7 months old, and we have had him for 6 months. He has just recently begun to jump up into my lap and actually relax enough to go to sleep. I can finally pet him without him being fidgety, so now I can begin to really develop our bond.
It’s the same with us and God. He wants to ‘pet’ us, to love us, to bless us in every way. But we tend to be cautious with Him just like Scooter was with me. All I wanted to do was be sweet to my little puppy, or I wouldn’t have bought him to begin with, but he just couldn’t figure that out for a long time.
How much God loves us and wants to cherish our time together. Won’t you give in to Him and allow Him to love you. It is those who seek Him that find Him. Seek Him today.
