|Our Love Letters
A few weeks ago, my husband and I celebrated our “dating” anniversary.
Here’s the whole truth:
You are Faithful.
He sees me and He calls me Faithful.
Not because I’m perfect.
Not because I do everything well or because I do it without complaint, but because I’m doing it as best as a fallen, selfish sinner who needs Jesus every single moment of every day can.
I’m doing it for the least of these and therefore, I’m doing it for Him. And because of that…He calls me Faithful.
Beloved, He see’s YOU.
He sees you at the 3 a.m. feedings when you are exhausted.
He sees you when you hold your baby in your arms and soothe his tender cries.
He sees you soothe every boo boo and pray against the monsters and bad dreams.
He sees you in early morning as you frantically search for homework and permission slips and fund raising money and shoes that never are in the right place.
He sees you in the 30 minute car pool line, the driving from ballet to piano to football and gymnastics.
He sees you holding broken hearts as you pray for the right words of sympathy and healing.
He sees you battling teenage drama and heartache.
He sees you fighting for your children at every age.
He sees you at the foot of every little bed, as you kiss goodnight and pray for restful nights.
He sees you as you wave good bye each time they leave for that college dorm.
He sees how much you love others, the way you minister to your neighbor or co-workeror the little children in your Sunday school class and the friend who needs your love.
He sees You.
And for all these things and so much more,
He calls you Faithful.
“If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones.” Luke 16:10
