sons and daughters
and when i swim i sense his pleasure
this should have been so obvious, but while i was doing laps in the ocean pool just recently it hit me.
it reminded me of Eric Liddell in the movie Chariots of Fire and what he said.
'I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.'
that was it. he hit the nail on the head.
and when i swim i sense his pleasure (and no, he didn't make me fast). i so sense the Father enjoying my joy and THIS puts me in the office of sonship.
and you know that giving language to that pleasure, his enjoying me enjoying my joy creates such an indelible bond. a savoring sweet spot to go back to time and time again.
