If you're a parent of grown children, how long has it been since you've seen them or talked with them? When was the last time your child told you they loved you? When did they share something -- either good or bad, sad or happy -- from their lives? When did they seek your guidance and advice? And take it?
No matter how long it's been your love continues and waits and continues and waits ...
So God waits and loves ... and waits and loves ... and waits and loves ... while we flail about in the chaos of our existence trying to survive and prosper in an inhospitable environment with dismal and discouraging results.
Picture this -- your son or daughter who has ignored you for years calls to say "hi". Your heart soars and is so glad to hear their voice, just to know they thought to call; and your love rushes out to cover them. You want to hear all about how they are, what they're doing, how life is going for them, where they are, and when can you see them.
Now we're just human beings with greatly imperfect love and we have this reaction to our children so what do you imagine God feels toward one of His children who opens the door of their heart to Him and talks with Him about their life, their goals, their desires and their needs -- a child who wants to be in His presence, who seeks Him out?
If it's been a long time since you've connected with your physical parents, why not get in touch and bless them by sharing a bit of your life.
If it's been a long time since you've "connected" with your Heavenly Parent, get in touch and bring joy to Him by sharing your life and see what marvelous blessings His love and guidance will pour into your life.
