These are the three men in my life. My husband Eric, son Jonathan, and my Daddy (I may be 32, but I will always be his little girl). God has used them to teach me facets of His character.
From my Daddy, I learned that God truly is my Abba Father that I can run to like a little child and receive warm hugs and tons of affection. Through my husband, God has revealed glimpses of His deep love for me. A kind of love that loves me with my faults, but challenges me to be more tomorrow than I am today. A love that supports my dreams and grounds me reality.
And by being a parent I have been overwhelmed with how rich and deep and wide my Father's love must be. From the moment I held Jonathan, I was amazed with the love I felt for him. Why was it a surprise? Don't all parents feel that way? Well, my legal work has taught me that no some parents don't, and Jonathan is my second child. I expected that flood of love with Abigail. With Jonathan I realized that love can multiply. It isn't a zero sum game, but an ever expanding commodity.
How has God used the people in your lives to reveal His love for you?
