Become as Little Children
Life is a series of lessons to get us back to where we began as children.
Life was once full of excitement and adventure.
Everything was new and exciting.
Each day held a promise of discovery.
Laughter filled our lives. Tears were shed and forgotten, quickly and easily.
Anxiety and stress did not fill our days, if we had good parents.
For many of us, safety resided in our childhood homes. Our parents cared for us and met our needs.
But then we learned there's evil in the world.
And life became stressful.
We began to think it all depends on us.
But it didn't and doesn't.
When we let the Holy Spirit into our lives, he fills us, guides us. We can learn to depend on him.
And if we mess up, there's no need to cry over spilled milk.
It's only a small little ding in the world, not worth notice.
And things work out, in ways we cannot dream of.
And if it's meant to be, it will be.
If it doesn't happen, life goes on.
And, in the meantime, we discover that beauty still exists. Knowledge is not held within one person. Discovery is still out there. And safety resides in our Father's arms.
