Okay, I need to finish the new protocol for the new COVID guidelines for my office. Have to follow up on that consult case that my residents sent me. Oh, and I need to call Jake and…
“Dad, I love you.”
I looked up from my dinner plate at the smiling face of my son. I was so preoccupied with my own concerns, I was completely ignoring him during our dinner together. Lesson learned. I fist pumped him and said, “I love you too, son.” He grinned as I added, “Thanks son, I needed that.”
It was an embarrassing lesson, one of many that my son teaches me. When will I learn to savor the time I have with my son and my family instead of focusing upon my selfish needs? It is the same with my relationship with God. I am so preoccupied with my life, I sometimes forget the reason why I am even able to do anything. It is not to exalt myself, it is to honor God.
Be still, and know that I am God…
Psalms 46:10 (NKJV)
Dad, I love you.
I heard my son speaking to me. Do I hear God just as clearly?
In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.
Psalms 94:19 (NKJV)
Praise God for His grace and mercy to me through faith in Jesus Christ.
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
