Can't you feel me?

Klayton was lying in my lap asleep.  When he awoke he didn't see me, his eyes were diverted and elsewhere.  He began to panic.  Fear replacing peace.  I quickly picked him up as the tears began to fill his eyes and put him to my chest.  Cradling him within my arms I kissed his forehead and said, "I am right here.  Couldn't you feel me? Couldn't you sense that I was with you?"

Immediately I wondered just how many times God has whispered that to me. "Karmen, I am right here.  Can't you feel me? Can't you sense that I am with you?"  How many times have my eyes been diverted and elsewhere other than on Him?  How many times have I been nestled in His lap and not even realized it? When fear replaces peace I need to remember that God has me within His loving arms.  He has me cradled to His chest and He is present and hasn't left me.  What an amazing gift to be God's child.  Thank you Lord for reminding me of Your love.


  1. Love this, Karmen . . . I'm convinced that God holds babies in a way the rest of us won't let him hold us anymore.

  2. I agree with you but I also think that God is always holding all of us. He is just waiting for us to notice. To put our eyes back on Him and sense Him.

    Romans 8
    a couple of highlights:
    16The Spirit Itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

    38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

    39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    pretty cool and humbling stuff right there! =)
