Today’s devotional in Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling is so beautifully said and freeing. A reminder to ignore the whispers of the enemy that take the form of guilt. A reminder that our loving God wants us to experience joy in abundance.
After a perfect day yesterday celebrating Dave for Father’s Day, I can’t help but think of how fitting Sarah’s words are this morning. Relax, laugh, enjoy these days.
We spent the day experiencing quiet moments tucked away from the world. Moments of joy. We stepped away from our responsibilities. We slowed our pace. We deeply inhaled the fragrance of summer – heavy air dripping with humidity – and escaped to the luxury of a mid-afternoon movie date while a sweet neighbor read to our sleepy boys and stayed home for us while they napped.
The day was steeped in holy moments.
That evening, we were ushered into His kingdom by the laughter of our boys.
