TITLE: Kiss the Father

A note to all God's children from the heart of God.
A few days ago I was leaving for work and I bent down to kiss my twelve year old son on the forehead. As I rose up he did not kiss me back. Without thinking about what I said, I responded, Dont ever get to big to kiss your father. He grinned and kissed me on the cheek and I went to work.

While driving in my truck I was abruptly overwhelmed with a since of hurt and sorrow to the point of tears. The tears flowed like hot oil from my eyes. I did not understand what was happening so I prayed, God, I know everything in my life is going well and I am not upset about anything, so please tell me what this feeling is coming from.

Instantly, the Holy Spirit spoke very clearly to me, Dont get to big to kiss the Father. Instantly I realized that I had not spent any intimate time with God that morning. I had woke up late; was very tired and in a hurry. I soon realized what I was feeling was the sorrow God was feeling because I did not kiss Him before I started my day.

As a dad I desire and long for my daughter who is away at college to hug and kiss me like she use to do every morning and every night. Now, I have to settle for a phone call or a text or email message. It just isnt the same. Im thinking about putting a web cam on her computer and mine so we can see each other as we talk.

God so much desires for His children to reach up and kiss him on the cheek; to take His hand and hold on tight as we walk along each day; to wrap our arms around his waist and squeeze as hard as we can in love.

I believe His heart breaks when His children rush off into the day without giving Him a thought. I believe I felt a small portion of his hurt and sorrow that day and my mind is carried to the cross and how much He gave up for me and you.

God created us so we could love Him. Love Him hard and give Him a kiss. He desires nothing greater than these.
