Never Want to Miss a Thing

Never Want to Miss a Thing

Never Want to Miss a Thing

Baseball season has begun. That means, spring is really here, and summer is right around the corner!

That means this mama’s hard work of pitching, throwing, and catching many many many balls with my kids will pay off on the field. I love helping my kids practice and improve.

My oldest son had his first baseball game of the season last night. It was a beautiful day in Kansas — cloudy but warm. It was a fun game, with my son playing catcher and third base. He even hit a home run! It was a great start to his season!

A friend of mine has a son just a year older than mine. He had his opening game last night as well (and played great). His brother was sick, so his mom stayed home with the sick one, while his dad was at the game. His mom was bummed to miss seeing her son play, which is understandable. She’s been a dedicated baseball mom for many years! She doesn’t want to miss anything her kids are involved in.

I was praying for her this morning, and God brought something to my attention:

God doesn’t want to miss anything either.

I literally had to pause what I was doing to think about that.

God is a Father. He takes joy in seeing us practice, learn, and grow. When we hurt, He hurts with us. When we rejoice, He’s there, cheering us on. Through the good and the bad, God the Father doesn’t want to miss any of it. 

Psalm 139 says, “You have searched me, Lord,
    and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.”

God is with us – always. No matter where we go, God is there.

Just like I don’t want to miss a single baseball game this season, God will not miss a single event in my life (or yours!). Ever. Trust in Him, even in those tough times and remember that He is right there. Remember in the great times to look to Him with thanks, because He’s cheering you on.

God is with you

    • Thanks Sheila! We are sure glad it is warm this April. Usually, we are bundled up for the April baseball games (and we may next week!). One day it will be 80 and the next will be 50. We never know. :)

  9. Hi Dana, I found you on the End of the Week Confessions link up party. Shared on G+ and Twitter. I like the title of your post. God is certainly wanting to be a part of our every moment. I think of God existing around us like those radio and gamma rays. If you ever watched Alphas, one of the characters can see those different wavelengths… makes me think of God’s presence being there but not always noticed by all. Blessings~
