This morning I sat buried beneath my two children. Literally buried, as they climbed into my lap and fought for their position. All I wanted was to get up and make some coffee. But I sat there, trying to breathe (truly) as the Lord reminded me how he wishes I’d fight for my position in his lap. . .how he longs for me to long for a place so close to him.
I cherish my children with all my heart. At times, if I am honest, I do feel buried under the weight of loving and caring for them. But as I think about the truth of how the Lord cherishes me and was buried under his love for me (and you), I am compelled to snuggle in as those kiddos pile themselves (plus every.single.lovie they have) on top of me and breathe in his grace.
They are cherished. I am cherished. All is well.
Do you feel cherished today mama? As you love on your kiddos today, be reminded of how much he wants to pour out his love on you.
