I found this quote today. I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be from a mother to her baby. Probably to hang in a nursery. I love the sentiment. It is totally beautiful. But when I read it, it was the Father's voice I heard. I wish I could make everyone see how much God loves them. Do you know the strength of His love for you? Close your eyes, be quiet and listen for His heart beat. He is so near. Can you feel His pulse? His heart beats for you. You can hear it from the inside.
Starting from scratch, he made the entire human race and made the earth hospitable, with plenty of time and space for living so we could seek after God, and not just grope around in the dark but actually find him. He doesn't play hide-and-seek with us. He's not remote; he's near. We live and move in him, can't get away from him! One of your poets said it well: 'We're the God-created.'
