Jeremiah 33:3 – “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”
There are few things in life that make a parent happier than when your grown children take the time to call you. My son and daughter spent the summer in Texas and my other son in Iowa. When any of them call, you can bet I drop everything to listen to their stories. They don’t always have big news to share but I love hearing about their daily adventures or how work is going. Their calls are the highlight of my day!
Jesus feels the same way when his children call on him in prayer. He longs to listen to our big news, our needs and our daily adventures.
On Friday I lost my Aunt Elma and a wise close family friend, Andrew who lost his fight with leukemia. I won’t hear their voices again until we meet in heaven. And that makes me very sad. Take the time to talk to your parents, your kids and Jesus this week. You will all be blessed by the conversation!
