Anyways, what IS the best feeling in the world?

His almost-6-year-old questions can be so random. And deep. Sometimes I laugh. Sometimes I’m left breathless and with no answers. Sometimes his questions lead me to answers I’d forgotten

“Mom? Is dirt in the same f’lamily as sand?”

“Mom? Why do we call it ‘sewage’?

“Anyways, what IS the best feeling in the world?”

This last after Uncle Nathanael and I had agreed that the feeling of a coming thunderstorm was the best feeling in the world. Rain began to fall and the question was not one he was going to let go unanswered:

“Is it going to church or reading your’s Bible?”

I found myself instantly anxious to guide him to an answer beyond religion and duty. I quickly formed words which I then tried to let out slowly so he would–hopefully–sense the depth of conviction and truth behind them.

“Yes—yes…it can be those things—really, it’s anytime you are in the presence of God. The best feeling in the world is being with God.”

Do you have trouble living the answers you say you believe—like me? My friend Katie’s post was so encouraging to me this week, as I seek small moments to turn my heart toward my maker and that ‘best feeling in the world’.

Don’t under estimate how much time the Spirit needs to meet us – He waits only for us to want Him.”
