Intimacy with God the Father – Thought for the day

Our most beloved Father desires profoundly to have an intimate relationship with each and every one of us. Yet we continue doing our level best to ignore Him, marginalize Him, pay Him all kinds of lip-service, and in general keep on going about our daily lives as the first-class ostriches that we really are. What is it going to take for us to realize that Our Father is serious in what He is requesting and that He is deeply wounded by our ongoing neglect and abandonment of Him? When are we going to listen to His desires and the innermost desires of our souls?

Let us each, therefore, start by giving Our Father something, no matter how small it may be. Something from the depths of our hearts, even if it is just a single thing, to indicate to Our pleading Father that we have not forgotten Him and that we do love Him, despite our stubborn ongoing neglect of Him throughout the course of our daily lives. He will repay us in ways that we would never dream of, for having started to faithfully assuage the depths of the wounds we have so mercilessly inflicted – and continue nonchalantly inflicting – upon His grieviously wounded Divine Heart. For Infinite Love He Is and He desire us all to live within His embrace, so that He can be truly Our Father and we will indeed be His faithful children.
