“Loving From A Distance”

I looked down and saw a pair of turquoise eyes looking up at me. As I walked through the house doing chores, he followed me from room to room. Each time I stopped, so did he and looked up adoringly with those gorgeous eyes of his.  That Miney, my sweet cat, loves me, is indisputable, but behind those beautiful eyes and inspite of his love, I still see his fear and lack of trust. Each time I attempt to caress him he dashes off and watches me from a safe place. Miney knows that I am the one who feeds him  and makes sure his water bowl is full. I’m the one who gives him the special treats he loves so much.  And he loves to be in my presence as long, as I don’t get to close.

Am I like Miney, Lord? Do I love you sometimes from a distance? Do I look at you adoringly, but fearfully? Am I grateful for all that you give me,  yet run when you want to give me a special caress?

Trust! That’s what it is all about…..Miney loves me, but he just can’t bring himself to fully trust me. This breaks my heart, for he is one of three feral kittens I rescued from sure death two years ago and still he doesn’t trust me.

I was rescued too!  When I was heading down a path that led to total destruction, God reached down and changed my course. I love him so much, but I’m still working on trust.

One of these days I’m hoping that my Miney will trust me enough to curl up in my lap, like his brother and sister, Eeny Meeny and MoMo. I have a feeling that God, is saying the same thing to me. “Come on Betty. Just climb up here and let me hold you closely.”

Is He possibly saying the same thing to you?

Shalom……..Betty
