Monday Musings

This is my Hannah's (age 4) picture of God. Above Him is the sky and below Him is the earth. Unknown to her this picture captures the essence of God. He was in creation and active part of creation and the problems of earth are much smaller than His power. He is in control. Though He allows things to happen upon the earth to us whom He loves so deeply.....He is never far from us. He is bigger than all our problems or worries. His love for us goes deeper than we can imagine. He gave us His Son for our sins, though we were unworthy.

Watching my children's faith grow is beyond words. They trust God with all things. As an adult, too many times I let the what if's get in the way. I try to fix it myself. My children, pray and expect God to answer in their behalf and for their benefit. They pray without doubt. That is why God says for us to come to Him like a little child. I think my daughter's picture of God is beautiful and it made me think of how truly amazing our children view our world, our faith and so much more. God is good all the time, no matter what is going on, I can rely on HIM.
