O Lord, You have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.God most certainly knows us and everything about us. Look what Psalms 139:16-18 goes on to say . . .
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!If I would count them, they are more than the sand.God knows everything about us and He continues to think about us, and enjoy doing so. He continues to choose to be with us. He continues to love us.
This is what it looks like to know and love someone like God knows and loves us. While we are not able to know and love someone the way God does, we are able to make the choice to know our grandchildren and love them with our all. We are able to . . .
- Pay attention when they have something they want to tell us. Put down the tech and give them our full attention. God listens when we talk to Him - no matter the time of day, or night and no matter if we have a lot about which we want to talk. We are able to do this for our grandchildren and it is one way we will get to know them . . . and they will be able to see our love for them is real.
- Make time to connect with them - if you are not able to physically spend time together each week, make time to connect using tech. Do this every week.
