At the time of this writing I have a 2 year old daughter. She is full of energy, and quite hard headed. But, when I think about how much I love her, and how long we waited and prayed for her, my heart overflows with love to the point that it hurts.
The other night while putting her to bed, she was crying not to be left alone. As I sat next to her bed, patting her back, I thought, this must be how God feels when we cry out to Him not to be left alone. He’s right there next to us “patting our back,” saying, “Child, you are never alone!”
