Ever heard of the Eli Young Band? If not, you need to listen to their latest song "Crazy Girl," (which I so kindly added the youtube clip for you to make it easy). I was listening to it the other day, and the lyrics made me think so much of my relationship with my Father in Heaven. The chorus goes like this....
"Crazy girl, don't you know that I love you?
I wouldn't dream of going nowhere
Silly woman, come here let me hold you
Have I told you lately I love you like crazy, girl?"
It made my heart melt a little, slash conviction started creeping up on me. This song is meant as a love song from a man to a woman, but I like to look at it from God's perspective. Whenever life has me down, or I get in a rut of sadness I can just picture him saying those words to me, "Katie you are so silly, come here let me hold you." Like a father is supposed to love and cherish, hold, and protect his daughter, our Father in Heaven is even better at these things, if we let Him be. So why don't we always run to Him? In times where we can't see the light at the end of the tunnel, why do we look to other things? He is the only one who can clean up our boo boos, kiss it and make it better, but yet continually I run to other things, other people for the comfort that God knows how to bring me better than anyone. He reminds me often that He is not going anywhere, and when I think myself dizzy over situations He is there to hold me and bring me comfort, and tell me I need to stop being such a crazy girl.
P.S The Eli Young Band will be at Dukes on Halloween this year, anyone interested? I think I just might have to be at that one. Until next time, I'm going to work on running to Him as my shelter.
Love and Protection,
