This morning I was having a conversation with myself as I thought about my life. I giggled and said, “Laura, of course God loves you! He even jumps up and down when He sees you because He is so happy!” I laughed knowing it was true, if not literally then certainly metaphorically. It’s sweet to be a child of God.
Recently I have reflected that sometimes His children will not treat me like good sisters and brothers. I have considered that sometimes they will treat me quite awfully, but God never will. No matter what happens, God will always be my good Father. He will never stop being faithful and true, kind and loving. He will even never stop being joyful as it is a natural result of His good character.
Today I am so grateful for my good, good Father! I pray that as we go throughout our day, we will experience His goodness in abundant measure! May His family be ours. May we love and be loved! And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance, dance!!!!
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.” Ephesians 1:3-4by
