Tea Party with Jesus

We as adults forget what it is like to have a life with Jesus and to truly talk to him and spend time with him. We are all so busy with our daily lives that we forget to take time out for the important things in life. Like talking with Jesus. Have we ever thought about what Jesus might be going thru? How his heart is breaking? If he is feeling bad? Is he having a bad day? Did we hurt his feelings?

Let me tell you a story of a 7 year old little girl.

This little girl is a precious child of God. She loves to go to church, to sing songs to God, Sunday School. She loves the Lord with all of her heart and loves to pray for people. She believes for what she is praying for also.

One day this little girl was playing in her room and had been in there a long time. Her dad was in the living room and heard his daughter talking to someone. He knew that she didn't have any friends over and that his son was not old enough to talk yet. He went to her bedroom door and stood there. As he stood there, without her seeing, he noticed she was having a tea party. As she went around the table, pouring tea and handing out snacks, she just kept on talking. Finally, the dad just had to ask his daughter, "Who are you talking to?" His daughter turned around and smiled and said, "Jesus", and then turned and continued talking. The dad said that he was ashamed of himself. That his little girl was sitting there playing with Jesus, having a tea party with him and talking to him about nothing in particular and he doesn't even talk to him on a regular basis.

When was the last time you talked with Jesus? When was the last time you talked to him without asking him for anything? When was the last time you invited him to one of your family gatherings?

This little girl that I am talking about is my very own granddaughter. She has a loving personality and has the sweetest spirit about her. She is a joy.

As a child, that is how we should always come to the Lord. Humble, loving and excited to be in his presence.

Have a tea party with Jesus.
