The Day my Two Year Old Son was Scared of Me!

Tuesday, March 11

Another Typical tuesday or so I thought:
staff meetings
meeting people
thinking, alot of thinking

For the first time in a long time Sherilyn phones in sick to work.
I come home, Noah won't come near me. As the evening progresses, he keeps a distance
A few times I try to walk forward to embrace him - he screams and runs
Accidentally, Noah falls over my leg and he's done for the rest of the night.
Sherilyn and I have no idea why he acted this way.
Maybe he was just having a bad day!

Sometimes my spiritual walk is like that
Sometimes I don't want to look at God in the eye
Sometimes when He looks at me I want to run away
Sometimes I just want to keep a distance because of how I am feeling

Yesterday, I attended a class at Horizon College.
The class was on New Testament Texts
The prof went on to describe the authenticity and historicity of the texts
What confidence we can place in these texts that are authentic
What confidence we can place in Christ who orchestrates these divine moments.

Eventually Noah will let me embrace him again
Eventually I will walk even closer to my God and have greater confidence!

A great entry Rob - true thoughts I'm sure a lot of us don't think about often. I do hope that you all are doing good. We love you and miss you!
