Tonight while playing with my one year old I learned. I was sitting on the ground, as she would get up I would grab her and hug her. After two times I quit grabbing her, instead of running away at full speed she would actually walk backward and fall on me. The fun for her was not the play of running away but rather falling into her father's arms.

Maybe that is what sanctification looks like. Instead of the fun we think we are having running away and being grabbed by the Father, perhaps we need to find out if when God let's us go, falling back into his arms is the way to go? Just something I learned.
