“…we speak of God’s secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God has destined for our glory before time began.” I Corinthians 2:7
“…the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27
Last autumn when I visited my five-year-old granddaughter, Anjela, she engaged in a sweet little game with me. With a twinkle in her eye and a motion of her hand to come close, she said, “I want to tell you a secret.” I leaned near to her, my ear next to her mouth. She then placed a soft, butterfly kiss on my cheek, drew away, and giggled. I lost count of how many times in two weeks she did this. My grandma heart melted each time she reminded me how much I am loved.
There is a secret, mysterious kind of intimacy for each child of God. The Holy Spirit makes His home in each of them and whispers with soft, butterfly kisses, “The Father loves You.” To know this love and to live in it is a glorious mystery.
Father, thank You for Anjela’s butterfly kisses. Thank You for Yours. Your love and the hope of glory make me rich.
