My son Jackson loves for me to cuddle with him in a rocking chair before bed time. I also cherish this time, snuggling with my little miracle...but I must admit there are times when I contemplate laying him down in his crib because I am so tired...yet I rock. I've realized how important this "mommy time" is to him (and to me!) ...and so I rock.
Jesus longs to rock us in His arms...so do we take advantage of His offer? Do we stop and give Him our attention to tell Him what's bothering us, what we're excited about, what our joys, fears, failures, and triumphs are? Jesus will give us all of His time - no matter what time the clock says - if we will only take time for Him.
And so...I rock.
