Yesterday my oldest son was having car trouble and I was the first call he made. As I was driving to help him I got a revelation.
I have always said your revelation of the father heart of God increases when you get married. It increases again when you have children. Yesterday I realized it increases again when your kids move out of the house.
Since my oldest moved out he’s been very busy. Working full-time, doing the band thing, managing several relationship including a fiance. I’m not the top of his priority list and rightfully so. He’s growing into a fully self-sufficient adult.
So every time my phone rings and I see that its him I smile. It must be how the Father feels when we call on him.
As I was driving to help him out I realized I was grateful for the car trouble. I didn’t cause it but it initiated a contact with me from one of my sons who I love very much and miss him being around all the time.
As with any analogy it’s not perfect and can be taken too far. Just a little insight into a greater revelation of the father heart of God.
