This last week for spring break we had the chance to take a road trip. This was the first trip without our oldest daughter who was off to college. My two other daughters had the opportunity to spend some quality time together. I can honestly say it was a very pleasant ride; no cat fights and all. As our week was rounding up, my youngest daughter was very emotional and testy. We had a hard time getting to the root of the emotion until she finally broke down and started to cry. The reason why she was crying is because reality hit her I guess and she realized that this sister she had just spent the week with will only be home one more year and them she will be off to school like the eldest.
This was a great opportunity for us to crack open the bible and read to her our of Luke about the passages that refer to not worrying and giving our worries to God. We explained to her that it is God’s job to take our worries and lift the burden from her. We prayed and she seemed to get back quickly to her happy self.
This morning, I reflected on that moment and realized how easy it was for her to let the burden of worry go. It’s the child like faith that makes it easy for her just to hand it over to God never looking back. Why can’t I be like that? This morning I prayed to God that He would help me work on my child like faith and I thanked him for using my daughter to show me again the importance of having child like faith.
