A little Freckle

So the other night, while washing my hands after a not worth mentioning task of mothering, I overheard this conversation. Karis says, "Freckle" as she points to Karson's said freckle only revealed during certain moments of the day. Karson says, "yep it's my freckle on my bottom, I take it everywhere with me, it's been there for a long time." Granted a long time to him is the roughly 3 years it has been with him, but I had to stop and think for a I treat my relationship with Jesus much like this freckle...He's with me always, but do I respond like He is there only during certain moments of my day, do I only care that He's there when someone else asks me about it? Do I only make mention of it when I am reminded? Am I only aware of His presence when I'm by myself, in the rare quiet moments in my mind and heart? I don't want my relationship with Jesus to be like a freckle, only noticed when it is obvious or asked about. I want my love of Jesus to be noticed easily when around me. I also want to be as proud and matter of fact about Jesus as Karson was his freckle..."I take it everywhere I go."

Hebrews 13:5 "Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said, I will never leave you or forsake you. Therefore, we may boldly say: The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"
