A lesson from my child


Last night God spoke to me through my child. I woke up to his whispers in the night “Mommy, mommy, I’m wet!” I rolled over and looked at the clock reading 3:21. He had wet his bed and needed a complete changing. After I had him all cleaned up, he asked to snuggle with me in our bed “Just for a little bit” he said. So that’s what we did.

After snuggling for a while I tucked him back into his own bed and as I lay on my own I began to think. I realized that that’s how I come to God. So many times. Needing cleansing. I mess up. I come to Him again, begging for forgiveness…needing help. Needing a washing.

So often Declan wakes up thirsty in the middle of the night and comes asking for water. I know the analogy is not perfect because I am human, getting tired and easily frustrated and God is the total opposite of that. He never grows tired or sleeps. But I think its still such a beautiful thought that just as I get up and give my son water, night after night. So, we come to God. Asking for water. Begging to have our thirst quenched. And He fills us! Time and time again. He fills us. He showers us with His love. We are filled. We are washed. We are cleansed!

That’s what I felt God speaking to me through the life of my child. We love our little ones so much and would do almost anything for them but God loves us so much more!

Have a blessed weekend!
