I Have Missed You So Much

I’ve Missed You So Much
The small boy stopped his crying and looked into his mother’s eyes as she reached down and put her arms around him and assured him that he was ok. For the briefest of moments he had gotten lost in the large store and someone had seen him crying and they had called over the speaker for a ‘lost mother.’ The moment she had heard the call she looked around and knew that it was her son who was crying and she the mother that was lost. It was wonderful to see the way he looked at her when she ran to him and knelt down to hold him. That is one of the great gifts of mothers, that warm and safe embrace.
All of us have rejoiced when we saw our child or another looking at us with those big bright eyes. There is just something about that which reaches out and grabs our hearts. Have you ever considered that God would love to see that same look on our faces as we bow before Him in prayer? Eyes bright with joy, heart filled with excitement all because we were coming to see our master in prayer. Maybe the reason we don’t realize that is we do not spend any time listing to God, just in silence before Him with eyes that are expecting and hearts filled with joy; with even our bodies in need of His strength. We talk too much, we should listen more. Maybe we never experience that because we never seek Him with such a heart and wonder. Even my dog Louie, use to jump and bark and get so excited when my car pulled in the drive. Now we really should be smarter than dogs and we certainly should be more excited than they to meet our Master. Real prayer after all is welcoming the Master home into our heart. I use to think that Louie was saying ‘Where have you been, I’ve missed you so much.” I think Jesus would love for us to look at Him with that same longing desire to be held in His arms.
