The other night my husband was tossing our daughter around. After one toss she immediately said, “Do it again, Daddy!”
This made me think of my Heavenly Father and His love for me.
Do you remember one of those times when you just felt so full of joy, or peace, or contentment that you wanted to say, “Do it again!” to your Heavenly Father?
I believe that my Heavenly Father delights in my happiness just as my husband delights in our children’s happiness. My Heavenly Father is love. He loves me more than any earthly daddy could love his children.
When I obey and am in God’s will He can bless me and give me joy. Just like when my children are obeying and doing what’s right my husband [and I] can give them things and have fun with them.
On the other hand, my children will still get Christmas presents whether they are bad Christmas morning or not. So my Heavenly Father in His love and grace gives me blessings when I don’t deserve them.
How glad I am to be His child. “Do it again, dear Heavenly Father!”
Matthew 7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
