like an ocean

      I have been watching a mother and a father with their child. They watch his every move. They enjoy his laughing and his dancing and his resting. They hurt when he hurts. They hold him close. They pour into him like an ocean.

     So I wonder.  

     Does God watch my every move and delight in my delighting and hurt in my hurting and rest in my resting? Does He pour into me like an ocean?

“God gives each one of us His undivided attention.  And through this spacious channel . . . pour the ocean-tides of His love.” James J. Daly

“The Lord . . . delights in you. . . .” Zephaniah 3:17

“As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you.” Isaiah 66:13
