my God is so big!

Tuesday, April 1, 2008

lyla loves to sing. i guess with two parents who also love to sing, that would be a given. at the mom's group i've been going to, the childrens leaders lead the kids in simple sunday school songs that end up running through my head for the rest of the day. not because they're catchy. no, because there is a small person who runs through my house singing the songs she knows at the top of her lungs. and not just singing them, she does the actions too. with gusto.

the one she has taken the most liking to is *my God is so big!*. and it's funny, because whenever i begin to become overwhelmed with different circumstances in my life and i begin to feel discouraged, lyla is there with her arms wrapped around my leg stating"my God is so big mama!! sing! my God is so big!"

and i have no choice but to acknowledge that yes, my God is so big. so big in fact that everything else around me...the brokenness, the pain, the impossibility of it all pales in comparison to the fact that my Heavenly Father is enough and can bring me and those i love through this time of confusion and incredible pain.

thank you Jesus for giving me lyla who daily reminds me that i'm not big enough to handle it all...but You are.
