12 Days with God – Day Two

Join me for 12 days to spend more time with God, our Heavenly Parent.

This is the second day.

“Thus heaven and earth were completed with all their array. On the seventh day God completed the work he had been doing. He rested on the seventh day after all the work he had been doing. God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on that day he had rested after all his work of creating. Such were the origins of heavens and earth when they were created.”

Genesis 2:1-4

 

This was the day of challenges.

It’s been a lot You’ve been going through, I tried not to make it harder for You, Father.

I kept my promise. I’m always trying to do so, and this one I’ve learned from You, Father. I remember, it was the hard way, as so often feels – almost always. I learned, experienced, live through: I’m not omnipotent. My body has limitations and well, it seemed, so often, my heart has limitations, too. That was one of the most surprising discovery. A worthy one. A painful one. I felt so often helpless, like somebody who has lost the way and can not keep his promise…

You’ve taught me, Father, You’ve taught me well.

Sometimes, in distant memories I can discover the path, how different everything was before I could finally start to understand You were teaching me.

I can’t change time, I can’t change space. Things what are temporary, still feel long, everlasting. Boundaries, barriers, burdens. All what barricades us from freedom and true love…

A challenging day, Father, this I had. But I kept my promises. Almost each of them. And I will try to make the next day better for my children, and for the people in the world.

You’ve taught me, Father, You’ve taught me well.

Your son,
