I haven’t posted much in the past week, but today I was reminded of something that happened back in summer last year.  It was at the age of 14 that I was introduced to church, and it was here that I would come to know Jesus and follow Him.  Though that road as been bumpy (I was a prodigal numerous times), if there was one thing I always struggled with it was prayer, not in a personal setting, but corporate.  I always compared myself to others and because of that there were many times in my life that I would feel extremely insignificant and useless.  It wasn’t until I would became a Father that my perspective on how my Heavenly Father sees me would change forever.  Here below is a small yet what I believe to be powerful, revelation.

Yesterday I got home and my son Ryker runs up to me and gives me a hug ,”Daddy is home!”, he must have said that 10 or twenty times. Shortly after he holds up to me a piece of paper with scribbles of various colors, it was his drawing.  I showered him with praises and affirmation and gave him a high five. Was it a drawing similar to Leonardo Da Vinci’s paintings? No, but he wanted to show is father, and because of that it melted my heart.

As I was thinking about it I was reminded of this very thing while reading a book, just as a small child doesn’t make a bad drawing, neither are your prayers insignificant, or useless.  As a child of God they don’t have to sound eloquent or spectacular, He desires you to be you, the genuine you.  That God wants you to come as you are is one the biggest truths there is concerning our loving Father.  We know this because of Jesus, who reveals the Father perfectly.  So know this, as you pray regardless of its eloquence, you melt His heart.

Blessings

John
