I was recently thinking of my son, who had hurt himself playing, and how he ran to me for comfort and just to be held. As I began to comfort him and to love him back to “playing mode” I thought of something; Why is it that we have a Heavenly Father just waiting to hold us and heal us of all that life does and yet we try so hard to fix it ourselves? To no avail, I might add.
My son didn’t think of what others might say,he simply knew that daddy was going to make it all better. We get hurt in life and yet we don’t go to our Father for comfort and healing until we are almost completely wiped out.
Jesus tells us to come to Him and He will give us rest, to have faith as a little child. I have done it myself, try to win God’s love, but if you’re His child, you already have His love. Just like my son, he already has my love, all he has to do is come to me and will hold him. There are times when I just pray, “God hold me for a little while for comfort”. ”.
If I can encourage you, the next time you fall, RUN to your Heavenly Father, He is waiting for you. If I may end on a song that I really love to hear and sing, I don’t know who wrote or sings it.(if you know, please tell me). “They don’t know that I go running home when I fall down, they don’t know who picks me up when no one is around, I drop my sword and cry for awhile, cause deep inside this armour, the warrior is a child.

Jerry, this was a very sweet piece, and a lovely reminder. A quick Google search (invaluable help when writing) found that the songwriter was, apparently, Gary Valenciano. Credits are very important when citing other people's work, so make Google a first port of call if you are unsure of the source of something you are quoting. Anyway, the message of this little devotional was very good and I encourage you to keep writing from the heart--as you so obviously have here. It does need some paragraphs to break it up for the reader, but I'll look forward to seeing more from you in the future. With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator and Editor, FaithWriters' Magazine)
