Do you ever see God through your Children?

Do you ever see God through your children?  It is a humbling and astounding thing to be reminded of  amazing attributes of God just by watching your children do what comes naturally to them:

my children love me unconditionally
"Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands." Deuteronomy 7:9

my children run to greet me when I walk into a room
 Jesus is always waiting to greet me when I enter his throne room

my children love to spend time with me
"And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." John 14:3

my children easily forgive me
.."as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us."  Psalm 103:12

my children watch my every move
"The Lord will keep you from all harm-he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore."  Psalm 121:7-8

"From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind; from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth--he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do."  Psalm 33:14-15

Thank you, Lord for these three beautiful girls you have entrusted to my care for just a little while.  
Thank you for the lessons they teach me about You.

Would you share the lessons you have learned from your children?


  1. What a humbling post. It brought tears to my eyes. If we would only slow down enough to realize this! Just found your blog through Chele at The Bona Fide Life. Glad I did!

  2. Oh my AMEN! Beautiful my friend... absolutely beautiful! Isn't He AMAZING! :)

  3. Praise God that my children have taught me so much..all the things you mentioned and the ability to look at an ordinary situation and find joy in it- always amazes me. Thanks for a beautiful post!


I am so glad you that you stopped by today! What's on your mind?
