Share your blessings with us. They encourage others. We can share so many other things.... special gifts, recipes, let's take the time to share how God has blessed us!!
The blessing I am going to count today is the blessing that God tells us He will be our Abba, our Daddy. We have had a rough week around here. I am so glad that His mercies are new every day and that like it talks about in Psalm 131, I can climb into His lap and rest like a weaned child against His breast. The situation as it was could not be fixed by us. It continued to grow worse. With nothing more we could do, I climbed onto God's lap and I am resting there. This is where I need to find my source of worth, or peace, of love. I am one of His beloved. I am special to Him. He loves me enough that He sent His son to die for me. That is enough. Come on up into His lap. There is plenty of room.
