God sustains everything He created. All of creation depends on God for sustenance. We all rely on God, even though we struggle against that kind of dependence. Watching our little calf with her mama, I’m reminded of my relationship with God. She watches over that little baby, even when the tiny bugger kicks up her heels and jumps around pretending her independence. This morning the calf was nose-to-nose with my horse and when Indian licked her little nose, she ran back to mama for reassurance that the horse hadn’t given her any cooties!
I like to pretend I can get my on my own sometimes too. And I am brought up short by that strange sensation of a huge “lick on the nose” and I go running back to God for help. I continue to reflect in this season of Lent, and I think it’s good for me. I hope I hear God’s truth with these ears of mine that seem deaf at times.
I like the fact that my Worthy of Love is going to be released during Lent, because we all are worthy of love and I want that message to be the one readers come away with. No matter what shame we try to hold onto, God knows better.
