Despite how we may feel, the Father isn’t distant from us. Even when we don’t enter in expecting, He has the heart to draw us in and sing something new over us. I’m thankful for the moments my daughter heart naturally wants to push Him away because of questions and frustration & feeling too much yet not enough, but His Father heart continues to completely wreck me and knit me closer to Him than before. He won’t relent and I’m left in so much awe & wonder of that reality. My mother in law said it best, our tears aren’t a bad thing ..and He’s teaching us how to cry in the best way with Him again.
This photo of my husband watching our son with so much joy, reminds me of this scripture:
Don’t be afraid, don’t despair. God is present among you, a strong warrior to save you. He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm down all of your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.
