There's My girl!

From a section in my BSF lecture notes from today:

By grace Jesus can look at me and say, "There's My girl! There's My glory!" because God will give me His supernatural strength to do what does not come naturally

"There's My girl! There's My glory!" It about brought me to tears right there in the pew.

I could see and almost feel God put His arm around me in that statement.   

"Oh what love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God. And that is what we are." 1 John 3:1

The love I have for my children gives me just a glimpse of the type of love God has for me. I have realized this for a few years now, but sometimes it strikes me in new and unexpected ways. The other day I took the boys to the park to let them run around and play and to take their pictures because I love my time with them. I love just watching them enjoy life. I post pictures of them, blog about them, share the things they do and say because I love them. Because they are mine. They are my boys.

I don't know if I am making sense, but I wanted to write it down because it makes sense to me. And it is important to me. "There's  My girl!" keeps ringing in my ears. Another piece of my heart is healing.


  1. When we walk in the light of His countenance we are shining His glory; His glory is our strength. You are right that loving our children is only a glimpse of His love for us. That is hard to imagine! Cute post and I get it:) Blessings to you! Love, Rachael @ Inking the Heart

  2. Absolutely beautiful truths. It is wonderful that you can see and appreciate the love our Father has for us through your love for your sons! I'm starting to grasp that more since we were blessed to have our baby boy enter our home through the adoption process, a process we are yet making our way through with him! God allows us to feel such a special love when we have children. It's amazing. :) God bless you!
