i suppose that was a little something everyone needed. but did you realise, god was just like the man who had started giving out hugs?
then, there were people who rejected his offer. there were people who came expecting something ( a hug in return). those who had accepted all revealed a smile. i reckon a hug is actually the most subtle form of love. it doesnt have to be intimate ... just a friendly hug will be just fine.
i wonder if we all see ourselves playing a role in that movie.. are you the one who just walks off or the one who accepts the little hug. we always ask why are we the first one to make the move. we feel shy. we want that hug. but how many of us are actually brave enough to accept such grace and kindness from a stranger. we wonder if theres any catch to it.
did you realise? just like the man. god had already offered his son so that we may (if we believe) be able to feel his love. Only if we dare walk up to him. how many of us wants to walk up? but is afraid ?
part of James 4:8 goes like this "Come near to God and He will come near to you."
some versions goes like this "Drawn near to me and i shall draw near to you"
if you did notice.. the verse started with a ME taking the first step. all you need is one step nearer to him and he will walk ten thousand time nearer to you. contridicting is that its always natural for humans to question How soon will i experience him. How will i know? Is he really true?
this is something you have to experience for yourself. if only you dare. if only you expect something in return (just like the hug). i dare you to walk up to him. With Faith. With a desire to see him do something great to you and your lives. but only if you accept. dont test him.. it wont work. accept him. trust him. this response is up to you...
if you do... you could, just start praying. not pray actually. but Talk to him. like how you talk to your friends. cause most importantly is you wanting a relationship with him. he may know everything. but he wants you to want him. he wants you to tell him. he wants a Relationship with you.
