I am His son

Psalm 2:7 “I will declare the decree:The Lord has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.

Father & Son

When I think about my life and what's important I think about my family, my work, and of course (right?) God.  I think that most of the time I have a good balance of all of those things with a few other things thrown in the mix.

Today, while I was reading my Bible something struck a cord with me.  I read Psalms 2:7 and my heart jumped.  This isn't something that happens....often to me.  I'm usually pretty cool, I know God is with me and not much changes about that or excites me about it either.  I'm pretty even.

Recently, I have been feeling a....void.  That's the only way I can describe it.  Something is missing, I love God, I am doing, and want to do His will in my life but something about my relationship with Him is missing.

After reading this scripture today, I know what is missing.  I'm not allowing myself to spend time with my heavenly Father.  Yes, I'm reading the Word and talking to God how I "should" but I'm not letting Him BE my Father.  I long for that.  I desire, deep in my heart, for God to be my Father today.

God, no matter what I'm doing, no matter if I'm at work or home or church or the gas station, I want you to be my Father, I want you to call me your son.  I know there is nothing I can do to "earn" it, I just want it today.  So, while I'm at work today, help me to be your son.  Help me to make decisions based on that, help me to serve others based on that, help me to give based on that.
