Chapter-a-Day Psalm 5

Openarms_2 But you’ll welcome us with open arms when we run for cover to you. Psalm 5:11 (TM)

When my daughters were little, I could not enter the door of the house without hearing the cries of "Daddy!" and the patter of little feet running into my open, welcoming arms. They are teenagers now. Today, that patter of feet you hear is them running for the door.

My role is different now, as it should be. Like the Prodigal’s father, I often find myself waiting to welcome them. I’m waiting for them to come home. I’m waiting for those moments when they need to run for cover. Then my arms are open to welcome them.

In the same way, Our heavenly Father is waiting for us. His arms are wide open. Run for cover.

  1. Is there anything better, Tom? Daddy….and the pitter-patter of little feet. I need to enjoy that more, while I still have it 🙂

  3. 7-8 And here I am, your invited guest—
    it’s incredible!
    How humbling to know that God made the world, made humans and yet cares enough about me to offer me a personal invitation and a personal salvation. I accept!
