I’ve been thinking more about sitting in God’s lap (this is attributed to Calvin) since I have had this little guy sitting in my lap lately… When I see him, I wish to have him, awake or asleep, sitting with me.
I find such peace and rest when I climb up into God’s lap for an extended time of prayer. Last week, someone tweeted that we should feel guilty if we were to fall asleep in prayer. The writer implied that God is not bothered by our falling asleep in His lap. As I think of Little Will sleeping in my lap, I really get this idea. To have sat with God long enough to relax and rest is, I think, what He longs for with us. He longs for such intimacy with us. Plan to climb up into God’s lap with His word in yours and rest with Him.
