My heart has been so humbled lately. I’ve had several butterfly moments this past week. Have you ever had one of those? It’s a God promise. A little reminder from Jesus of His love for you. Four times this week I heard the same phrase spoken in vastly different settings. I’m still blown away by the kindness of Jesus. Something so sweet and healing to my heart. He knows just what to say when He speaks. I feel so entirely underserving. But as I was wrestling with this feeling, I was convicted by the Holy Spirit as I heard someone speak this scripture, “So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God” - Galatians 4:7.
We don’t ever, EVER, have to earn our way into God’s love. He already loves us. Better yet, we love because He first loved us, while we were still sinners. What I’m learning, daily, is to receive grace. The sweetness and abounding love of Jesus is promised to me, freely, as His daughter. He knows I’m broken and sinful, but all He sees is His daughter whom He loves. Let’s take confidence today in God’s promises. Let’s walk with a little swag in our step because of Who’s we are. Let’s live abounding with grace, mercy forgiveness and love for others as we have been given just the same from Christ. Underserving grace, yet so so needed. Let’s let the sweetness and joy of Jesus living in us overflow onto those around us.
What are some of the God moments you’ve experienced? A rainbow? A butterfly? A certain song? 🦋
“There's nothin' like the warmth
Of a summer afternoon
Waking to the sunlight, being cradled by the moon
Catching fireflies at night
Building castles in the sand
Kissin' mama's face goodnight
And holdin' daddy's hand” (How could I ask for more, @christynockels)

And even though we live in a state that is still humid, it definitely felt a little chill this morning. So we lit some candles for our breakfast and devotion time. I haven’t made the pumpkin bread like I wanted to #busymomlife, but we will get there. Together with a bucket list for Fall.

One of my favorite ways to eat lunch is quickly. 😂 Really though, when one hand is typing for work and the other is nursing a baby, eating lunch is typically me scarfing down something as quick as possible.
