God is using my daughter’s words to create a stir in me.
She is truly teaching me what being a ‘jar of clay’ is all about. She is being His messenger, always saying something that reminds me of His love and grace.
This month our “Monthly Memory Verse” is Psalm 107:1
“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever”
I figured that since Thanksgiving is this month, and the 30 days of thankfulness is abundant on Facebook, I would use this verse for my daughter’s verse.
It should be very easy for her to remember as she loves the Beckah Shae “scripture snack” based off of this verse.
In addition to the verse, we are doing a list of things that my daughter is thankful for. There are the basic things, like clothes, food, her family, her mommy, her daddy, her brothers, her toys, etc., but yesterday when I asked her what she was thankful for, she told me “I am thankful that God loves me.”
My darling daughter, in her six-year-old wisdom, is thankful that GOD LOVES HER.
We haven’t even gotten to any of the New Testament talking about God’s love. This is the first time that I think she’s heard a Bible verse about God’s love, besides when she hears things in children’s church, but I don’t know how much attention she really pays there.
Psalm 103:7 reads…
“But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children.”
God’s love is from EVERLASTING to EVERLASTING.
His love is eternal.
It never stops.
My six year old is thankful that God loves her! How often do we thank God that He loves us with an everlasting love? An eternal love?
How often do we “sing of His love and justice” like the Psalmist in Psalm 101:1?
Are we leaving a good example for our children to thank God for his love?
Let’s sing to the Lord and thank Him. Let’s have our children and husbands see that while we work doing what we do, we are doing it for the Lord.
