From my last post you know that I've been feeling this very heavy burden in my heart. My children don't understand why daddy can't hold them. They don't understand why he won't roll around on the floor with them or tickle them or even walk upstairs to read them a bedtime story. (Mommy's stories are good but they just aren't the same as daddy's ;-)) So this burden has just been so heavy and I started listening to the condemnation and my joy was gone. I would cry when I got some time alone, I would weep bitterly, painfully for my kids, for my husband, for me.
I know now that I was fighting this change, we have a new normal now and it just has to be like this for a while. We explain that daddy has an owie and we have to be gentle with him, they understand that even though they don't like it.
So back to my story about a lady I work with, I told her I would do that and here's what I found...
For as high as the heavens aer above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him. Psalms 103:11Praise God!
As a father has compassion on His children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him. Psalms 103:13Praise God!
The Lord has established His throne in Heaven, and His kingdom rules over ALL! Psalms 103:19
