God is so sweet, guys. He confirms time and time again the call on our lives and desires of our hearts when we least expect it. Affirming His love for us with every little moment like these.
I didn't expect to be spending so much time with little children in this season, but I'm not complaining! 💛 I teach preschool on weekday mornings and now work with bethel church teaching Sunday school to the "fireflies" and "dragonflies" (Pre-k and kinders) on Sundays!
This morning I was able to teach 3 different groups of 6 kiddos, share the gospel with them, and see almost every little hands eager rise to give their lives to jesus and invite him to make their hearts his home! Below is a quick audio recording of the sweetness of the moment to anyone needing some simple inspiration on sharing the gospel with little ones.
The sweetest moment from today for me was when we all went out on the playground to run wild and a little guy (i had never met) came up to me for a hug and just says, "do you know I have a foster brother?"
My heart sank and the Holy Spirit nudged me with confirmation and affirmation in that moment. I smiled, came down to his level, and shared with this sweet little guy that I too had been in foster care and have had many foster brothers and sisters. His eyes lit up with joy and relief that someone understood his little story and struggles. I was overcome with the father's love for him and began to shared the gospel with him. So excited and soaked up every word and hugged me with such relief and excitement. The moment was unlike any moment I've had in months, and it flooded me with such assurance that God knows better than I do what I was created to do and who I was created love. It was just the sweetest gift from the Lord, friends. I had to share it with you.
I encourage you to believe with radical, reckless faith, that God is good and delights in divinely orchestrating defining moments, great or small, to give us glimpses of his unending love for us and absolute sovereignty in His plans and purposes for our lives. We each have a unique call and irreplaceable spot in the Father's heart and plan on this earth. Wherever we find ourselves, we are invited to partner with God to share the good news of His love in our tiny or great spheres of influence.
Thank you, God, for the sweet moments you set up just to bless us, reveal your love for us and unravel your destiny for our lives before our eyes. You are absolutely amazing, King Jesus.
