Learning with your eyes

It has been so long since I have posted anything. Sorry. I love being a parent. Sure, it is a busy time day in and day out, but I understand God a little more. I understand His relationship with me and His care for me. I have a hard time wrapping my brain around the idea of His love for me. It is deeper than my love for my wife or my 3 little ones. He cares for me and wants the best for me. Wow.
I was thinking back over how the Lord has taught me and grown me in the past 11 years as His child. For the first many years it was through various books I read and sermons I heard. Here lately it is through my wife, my children, and my garden. These experiences help me to see the truth that is conveyed in God’s Word. The parables and analogies in the Word are fleshed out before my very eyes day in and day out. We are the Bride of Christ, we are Children and heirs of God, He is the Vine and we are the branches…All of those analogies are more meaningful to me than ever before. God wants us to understand Him. He gave us these analogies to help us understand. Keep your ears open to Him…Keep your eyes open as well.
