What does it meant to accept the kingdom of God like a child? It all comes down to trust/faith. Am I trusting God like a litle child?
When my kids were little they didn't worry, they had TRUST that I would take care of their needs. They knew that I would feed them, dress them, entertain them, play with them...love them. Am I TRUSTING God about my needs? He has promised to take care of my needs if I seek his kingdom. (Matthew 6:25:34)
They didn't worry when we went in the car becaue they TRUSTED that I knew where I was taking them. Am I TRUSTING God about where I am going? He has a plan for my life. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Funny thing is as they got older and turned in to TEENAGERS they started wanting to do things their OWN way. I miss those days when they were littler. I think sometimes I am acting like a teenager to God. I don't trust as well as I should because I want to do things my own way.
Dear God, please forgive me for wanting to do things my own way. I know that I don't know what is best for my life, but you do. Help me this day to trust you more. Help me remember how much you love me. Help restore my childlike faith. In Jesus' name amen!
This week's challenge is to make a card for a child. My nephew has a birthday coming up, so I made this card for him. I went with a fairly simple design. the only layering I did was behind the punched out trains so that you could see them. I punched out buttons and added thread to the centers.
