Here is something I pulled from my Promise Box this morning.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” -Eph. 1:3
It reminded me that I need to give God Almighty the honor and glory He deserves…for He, indeed has given me everything! All that I have comes from Him…even down to my children. So, this morning, I want to give it all back to Him, and trust that He will take care of everything.
I want to share this little moment with all of you…it was so precious to me! My youngest and I were having a conversation about God, and His goodness to us…how He blesses us, and forgives us over and over, again and again. My heart stirred, as I heard him say, “He’s a really good daddy, isn’t He! Is it OK if I call Him that? …If I call Him daddy?”
No Wonder Jesus said, “Suffer (allow) the little children to come unto Me, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven…”-Matthew 19:14. That is the kind of faith we are all supposed to have in our Heavenly Father!
Sometimes, I think I’ve failed as a mother, when I see my children go astray from the things they were taught as a child…but then God reminds me that He is in control; He does it ever so gently when he let’s me hear words like…”He’s a really good daddy, isn’t He! Is it OK if I call Him that?…If I call Him daddy?”
Here’s the poem that went with the above verse:
“We give Thee but Thine own, whatever the gift may be; All that we have is Thine alone, a trust, O Lord, from Thee.” -Unknown
If you’re worried about your children…or anything…just give it back to “YOUR DADDY.”
