I am a child of God.

As I was cleaning up around the house tonight, I began to think how tired I was of cleaning up the same messes over and over again. I don’t know how many times a day I clean up crayons, put back books, make sure play dough is returned to its container. The list goes on. I don’t usually mind, but tonight I was particularly tired. I then thought to myself, “I would clean up these messes a million times if it means being Lydia’s mom.” And then the Lord reminded me that he feels the same way about me. I so often find my self feeling guilty about needing the Lord to clean up the same messes in my life day after day. But tonight He set me free from that. He reminded me that He would do it a million times because I am his child. He also reminded me that unlike me, He doesn’t get tired. He is just glad that I am here needing Him, and willing to ask for His help. He is glad that I am trusting Him to clean up my messes. He is glad that I am simply his daughter, and was happy to pay the price of his own life on the cross to make that happen. My daughter doesn’t feel guilty because she needs me all the time. She just knows that I am always there to help her the second she asks. She doesn’t think twice about if I’m tired, or busy, she simply calls out to me. The Lord wants me to be the same way towards Him. I’m so thankful for this beautiful reminder. I’m so thankful to be a child of God. ❤️
