Have you ever tried to comprehend just how much God wants a daily personal relationship with the human race?
God loves us so much that we could spend our entire lives trying to comprehend just how wide and deep the Father’s love is for us and yet, we are incapable of fathoming God’s love in its totality. I was thinking about that for a little while today as over the last month, I’ve seen His blessing pour out over and over again for obedience to Him. The responsibilities I needed to tackle today seemed overpowering as I started the day this morning. But Proverbs 16:3 came to mind and I set it on replay:
Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will be established.
At the end of the day, for a moment, I thought, “Wow, I can’t believe all that I accomplished today!” But a split second later, my heart said:
At the end of the day, I don’t want life to be about what I accomplished today. I want life to be about what God accomplished in me.
Enter the I Love You to God and Back book review and giveaway. My two youngest took turns snuggling with Mommy tonight to read through this sweet book. With colorful illustrations and precious wording, the book encourages little ones to communicate with God on a daily, personal level. The book models the ACTS method of prayer: Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication; and my three year old listened intently tonight.
I just love the way the book teaches children to praise God for all He has given and does in their lives! A lesson I’m still learning as an adult- how about you?
This book is designed with ages 4 to 7 in mind, but I think this could easily expand to ages 3 to 8 for teaching prayer and personal time with God. If you have a snuggler, like my just-under-2 year old, then he or she might love it also.
I hope you’ve been inspired to praise God today. Even when it’s not easy.
And I’d love for you to enter the giveaway- just follow the Rafflecopter instructions.
