Today was a busy day. Work was consistent, but I still found myself wandering down What If Road. Ever been there? It’s like you’re grateful, but wonder what if this or that happened. What if I never get paid for this work? What if I’m just not good enough? What if that tragic thing that happened to them happens to me? What if…

It’s interesting being in a place where you are so reliant on God that you can’t do anything else but pray and trust. I was in my small/bible study group tonight and the perfect analogy for this was brought up. My friend said, it’s like you’re a kid, holding your parent’s hand, waiting to cross the street. That child trusts that parent to take them across. There’s not a doubt in their mind that they will get across that street with their parent’s help. Pure trust.

God is asking me/us to hold His hand and trust that He will get us to the other side. The other side of sickness, fear, doubt, unemployment, anxiety, depression…{insert your mountain here}.

And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:2-4 ESV)
