Whenever I look at my puppy Gino, always wagging around me with a happy face, I think of my relationship with God. I wish I should be His little puppy, showing my love towards Him and doing whatever He may like me to do.
Do you think that a dog life is the worst thing? It is how people describe the life of a dog. My puppy Gino takes whatever comes to him, he does not hold any grudge, and shows unconditional love towards me whenever he looks at me. He loves me, let me say that I amhis master, and trusts me for anything. He is sure that I will take care of him in every way. Is it so simple to confide everything in the master and be calm?
As a human being, I do not find my life as simple as my puppy Gino. It is not quite simple as it is for my Gino. I have a lot of things to think of. I have a lot of responsibilities. I have a long to-do list after which I am running around every day, at every hour. I have to finish this and that. I am unable to sit in a place like Gino and enjoy the surroundings, simplylooking at them.
Yet, I wish to be a puppy of God, the great Master of all creations. I want to rust and love Him with a simple heart of a little puppy. I want to be carefree like Gino and think of the words of Jesus, saying, "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" (Matthew 6: 25-26) Then why I am still unable to be carefree like my puppy and like those birds of the air?
Oh God, how can I trust and love you to the maximum of my heart? How can I make myself fully dedicated and entrusted in your divine providence? I have heard that you are the Hound of Heaven chasing after me wherever I go! Catch me and make me your faithful dog, my Lord!
