Devotion by Julie

Hello my most precious child! I hope today is a relaxing end of summer day. As I lay beside Tommy who doesn't feel good, I feel a great sense of responsibility. He hasn't taken naps in quite awhile but the last couple of days he has slept more than he's been awake. I hurt for him and I feel helpless to make it better. All I can do is snuggle him in close and let his body fight the battle it has to do. I think about God and how this is exactly what He does for me. When I am sad or afraid or hurting or are just overwhelmed by life, God is there. He allows me to work out whatever my issue is for the day without judgement or criticism. He is simply present with me. Amazing concept. I am thankful that I can say I have a Heavenly Father who is always there just when I need Him most. My prayer for you today is that you will close your eyes and feel His presence. He's not intrusive. He doesn't make you feel less than....no, He let's you feel loved. May God's blessings be upon you and may you always know his grace. Love and hugs!
