I know all of the mothers out there will understand what I am talking about when I say that it is pretty much impossible to love someone more than you love your children. I love my son so much that I sometimes think my heart will burst!
As I was bouncing my little man to sleep the other day, I was praying and thanking God for this sweet little boy. I found myself saying, "Lord, I love him so much!"
Immediately the thought came to mind, "I am supposed to love God even more than I love this little boy." Wow...
I'm going to let that sink in for a minute.
Has it hit you yet?
What a humbling thought!! Can I honestly say that I love God so much that my heart could burst? Do I think of Him as often as I think of my precious little boy? Do I do as much for my Jesus as I do for my son on a daily basis?
I am reminded about the story of Abraham and Isaac. Abraham loved and trusted God so much that when he was asked to sacrifice his ONLY son, he willingly prepared to do it! Thankfully our Heavenly Father would never ask us to go through with that, but He does put us through tests to see how much we trust Him and rely on Him. Do I love and trust God enough to give Him my child???
What is even more amazing to me is that God gave me HIS only son! He sent Him from a perfect Heaven to this cruel sin cursed world... and for what? To die for MY sins!!
I am thankful the Lord is using motherhood to get my mind focused on where it should be... my little boy is a daily reminder of the love of God!
Sure do love this little boy!!
