08 Oct COME BOLDLY.
I was on a keke heading to Tafawa Balewa Square when a woman with three kids hopped in (and ofcourse she was only going to pay for all of them as one seat 😂). I immediately volunteered to carry one of the kids who then stepped on me though she didn’t take notice. She just lay there relaxed on me, playing with my hand. Now, funny enough, I was the one who felt so loved. I actually wanted to keep the kid close to me. Eventually they had to set down. As she was unboarding the little girl gave me this loving look. She never took notice of my stained shoes and I didn’t even bother. I watched the woman carry her army with her and all of a sudden I felt alone like the little girl shouldn’t have left.
Later, I found myself pondering over the scenario when the Lord spoke to my heart. He said, “Did you notice you valued the embrace of the little child above the stain on your shoes, so much so that you were not thinking about it”? I said yes. He said again, “Did you also notice you didn’t want her to leave”? I said yes again. He then continued, “That is how I see My children. I place them above their errors and mistakes. Their mistakes don’t change how I see them, what I will do for them and how I relate with them. I long for their fellowship. The same way you didn’t want her to leave because you loved the closeness, it is the same way I want to hold you close all day and keep whispering in your ears My unconditional love for you. One look from My children sends sparks into My heart that I can’t restrain from lavishing their faces with kisses. But religion has lied to them telling them that I’m angry at their mistakes. I am not an angry God. I am LOVE. I love the company of My children more than their efforts to please Me”. These words struck my heart. I looked at my shoes, and wiped them. “That is how I wipe your mess without calling your attention to it” He concluded. That scenario made my day.
Beloved, GOD IS NOT ANGRY WITH YOU. HE IS THRILLED WITH YOUR COMPANY!
