Need for attention

It never ceases to amaze me the need these kids have to have your full attention. I have one who will literally climb into your lab and scream in your face to get you to stop what you are doing so you will look at him. WOW!! Ok, I didn't need all that, but I am looking so I guess it worked.

I often feel like that's how we have to be with God. There are times in my life I feel like I pray and pray and pray, and pray some more, nothing. "Hello, are you up there?" I think I need to climb up the stair way to heaven, knock down those pearly gates, barge through the throne room, sit in Jesus' lab and scream at the top of my lungs until He looks at me!! There, I got His attention, hmmm, now what?!

That's about how it goes, I get the attention of the Master and then I dwaddle. I know full well how I get when my kids do that to me, I get frustrated. I am sure the Lord does the same. I don't know why I do it, but I do. I become like a school girl and stutter, blush and get tongue tied. Duh, duh, duh...What is wrong with me?

Nothing! I am perfectly human. One thing I do know, and wish there were more out there like this! Is that God is a gentleman, He is patient and will wait for me to get it out. He knows what I am there for even before I storm in and yell. He knows what the outcome will be before I even get the words to roll off my tongue.

This world is so full of distractions, so full of negative attention. I know that my spouse cant supply me with all I need. My best friend cant do it either, I am so thankful that Jesus is my friend, my protector and the one I can run to when I need someones full attention.

Another lesson learned from the little ones in my own lap!!
