The little boy was sitting quietly on the front porch step looking off into the darkness. A visitor approached the house and asked what he was doing. Oh, I’m just thinking about my kite, said the little fellow. “I’m sorry,” said the man. “Did the wind carry it away?” “Oh, no, camethe confident response. It’s still up there!” The man looked off in the same direction, but saw only the darkness of night. “Son,” asked the man curiously, “how do you know that your kite is still up there?” “Oh, that’s easy,” said the boy now pointing to the string running from his hand. “I can feel it tug at my finger.”
Too often, life becomes so complicated and so filled with stress that thoughtful moments of quiet seem almost an impossibility. God needs for you to make time to sit on the front porch and, while staring off into the darkness, consider Him and His love for you. Allow Him the opportunity to tug at your heart.
Psalms 46:10 (NIV) “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
