My recent article published by For Every Mom:
“The reality quickly surfaced that we can’t protect our kids from every bad conversation and influence. Instead, we need to equip them.”
While watching the new Lion King, our daughter nestled between us, grabbing daddy’s hand and mine. As we sat there watching the movie, our eight year old, holding our hands tight, I had a moment.
I thought, what a gift that this daughter of mine trusts me, wants to be close, looks to her daddy and me.
We get to be her comforter, protector, and refuge. Out of all the people in the world, she looks to us.
This morning I thought about how the Lord must love when we also look to him as our comforter, protector, and refuge.
How he must find joy in seeing us depend on him, trust him, grab his hand, and follow him. He loves you. You are His. Look to Him.
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” 1 John 3:1
