Had a profound conservation with my 9yr old brother two days ago and the conversation led to this:
Me: You know if we die, we’ll go to heaven to be with Jesus.
Brother: But you don’t have to die to go to heaven, Jesus will come and take all of us.
Me: yes ! you’re absolutely right baby and when we go to heaven I’ll push everybody and go and sit on Jesus’ lap and I won’t let anybody else come on.
Brother: No ! it is not like that !
Me: what ? then how ?
Brother: Jesus’ lap is so big that everybody will fit on it !
I sopped talking and looked at him with a smile and the joy that welled up on the inside i cannot describe.
Here we are with all the strife among us, in church, with people, the need to seek validation and the need to perform, it has become a race where we’re competing against each other but the truth is ‘His lap is big enough for us all’. !!! We’re all in this together !!! One Bride !!! He has more than enough for every single one of us !!! Daddy’s Love !!!
Lamentations 3:22-24 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”
