Every single morning before my husband goes to work he always comes over to my side of the bed and kisses me on the forehead. I’m not quite sure what it is about his forehead kiss but some how it makes me feel safe, secure, and all of sudden unbothered by the cares of the world. At the very moment that he kisses me I feel an overwhelming peace, like everything is going to be alright. Just by kissing me on my forehead he makes me feel like I can overcome anything and that I have no reason to fear. He makes me feel protected. He makes me feel like I have the ability to do anything. He makes me feel like superwoman. Every time he comes over to my side of the bed and kiss me on my forehead I some how forget about everything that’s not going exactly as planned and I enter into a moment of rest. A moment of rest from the chaos. A moment of rest from the frustration. A moment of rest from the misery.
As I began to ponder on what my husband’s forehead kiss does for me every single morning I began to think about how God, the Father, kisses us on our forehead every single morning through His love and grace. Before we even step foot outside of the bed He, through His grace, reassures us that everything is going to be alright. Through His everlasting, unconditional love He makes us feel safe and protected. Through His never ending kindness He gives us everything that we need to conquer our day. Through His unspeakable joy He helps us to forget about the not so perfect moments of our lives. Through the beauty of His majesty He wraps us in His arms and reminds us that we’re His. He whispers that He will never leave us or forsake us causing us to triumph over fear. Causing us to be bold. Causing us to be confident. Causing us to overcome.
I pray that you all are having a wonderful day. May the peace and joy of the Lord be your portion!
