Exhilarating

Remember the feeling of flying through the air?


Remember knowing the security that comes from a Father's arms strong enough to catch you?


Remember the freedom?

Remember the hug at the end?


As I was looking that those pictures I thought of how big and strong my heavenly Father is. Watching my child trust her father, makes me more and more aware that I need to trust God as she trusts her Daddy. Changes are (obviously) coming to our house. I can get overwhelmed easily as I get excited about all that is coming. The sleepless nights and endless laundry. The three kids and a baby who need me. As I was looking at these pictures this verse came to mind.

"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
Isaiah 40:28-30

One word came to mind.

Exhilarating.

His Strength.

His Endless Love.

His Capability.

It's quite...

Exhilarating to be in...

His ARMS!
