The other day a lovely lady requested we sing shall we gather at the river ;not aware the scripture God had led me to share was Mattew 18:3-14 (Unless you are converted and become as little children,you will not enter the Kingdom of God). As we sang the Lord flooded my memory with the memories of our children laughing, splashing and playing at the waters edge,filled with great joy and excitement.
I thought about it how much joy it gave to us to see them so happy and then I thought of how pleased and happy God must be to see us his children in this way,laughing and happy full of joy and peace This is how it can be and will be for us all some day, for those who believe. We will come to him as His Children we will meet him ( for he is the River of Life),our joy over taking us as we are overtaken in His Presence, His Power, His Love. We will come home to Daddy,with joyful hearts.
