Woke up to some not so great news. Again. I could honestly go on and on and on about how crappy everything has been lately, but that’s not what this post is about. Nope. Rather, this post is a reminder to myself that everything is going to be okay.
How do I know that? Because I have kids. That’s how.
You may be confused, I get it, but that’s how I know. Everything is going to be okay because I have kids. Allow me to explain.
From the moment I became a mother, even before I met my kids, I knew that there was nothing I wouldn’t do for them. I loved them. I would do anything for them. Absolutely anything.
They are my kids. They are my heart. They are my everything.
I am God’s child. I am His kid. We all are. We are His heart. We are His everything.
So He’s got this. How do I know? Because I’m a parent too.
I don’t always do what my kids want. I don’t always give them what they want. And sometimes my best lessons are the ones that hurt the most. But behind everything, there is love.
There is always love.
Same with Him. Behind everything He does or doesn’t do for us, is love. If I love my children as much as I do, and to be honest, I have the hardest time describing my love for my kids, because it’s not like anything I’ve ever felt before. There is nothing familiar about it. It didn’t take work. It just happened. So if I feel this way and I’m just human and there isn’t anything really special about me, ya know? But if I feel this way, imagine His love and how He feels.
Seriously, take a minute, sit back and think about just how much He loves you.
It breaks my heart when people think they don’t deserve his love. Or when they don’t know that they are loved just the way they are. But it’s true. He loves us no matter what. He loves us even when we don’t love Him. He loves us when we don’t deserve it. He loves us when we make Him angry. He loves us when we break His heart.
The bottom line, we can do anything and He would still love us, no matter what.
He isn’t mean. He doesn’t want to hurt us. Just like Jaxsyn and Adelaide’s mom I don’t want to see them cry or upset, but sometimes, that’s what has to happen, because I love them. Doesn’t make me a bad person, it makes me a good parent.
And He’s the ultimate parent. He’s the best parent. Better than our parents who have ‘been there, done that’, He’s with us during the ‘there’s and that’s’. He knows what’s going to happen. Even during our worst decision making times He can fix it. He can make it work. Because He can do anything.
And since He can do anything, well, then, it’s going to be okay.
