I’m a Child

My upcoming week is busy – full of adulting. But this morning, I’m choosing to rest in this thought: I’m a Child of the King. I don’t have to earn God’s love. I’m a daughter. I don’t have to work for my provision. I’m a daughter not a hired hand. I don’t have to argue His position. I’m his daughter not his lawyer. I can sit in His lap and...

On the Other Side

I was reflecting on the last six months of my life with a friend yesterday.
