Secure In My Love

We've been working so hard at teaching my two-year-old to listen and obey. Last week was full of tough love with more time spent on discipline than having fun together.

I was feeling defeated and a bit hopeless.

But yesterday morning, after we were done with breakfast he asked me to dance with him.

We've been working so hard at teaching my two-year-old to listen and obey. Last week was full of tough love with more time spent on discipline than having fun together.

I was feeling defeated and a bit hopeless.

But yesterday morning, after we were done with breakfast he asked me to dance with him. I picked him up, he tightly wrapped his arm around my neck, and softly laid his head on my shoulder.

Those moments spent swaying back and forth together in the kitchen were some of our sweetest ones yet. He was showing me love in the most sincere way a two-year-old can express it, communicating that despite the disciplining and not-so-fun moments, he knows he's secure in my love.

It made me think about my relationship with my Heavenly Father. There are times when I kick and scream and don't want to be obedient to Him. I don't understand why He would ask me to do this or that. But His unconditional love and truth about who Hs is keeps me running back to Him even when I'm frustrated. Though my flesh can be stubborn, my spirit knows I'm safe in His arms.

As we start this week, will you join me in dancing with our Creator? Let's surrender our desires and opt to be in sync with His. Let's lay our worries and cares at His feet. Let's give Him the praise He deserves, and show Him that we feel secure in His everlasting love!
