Come to him like a child

Last night I had to go to Wal-Mart to get some things that I needed while we were traveling. During this trip and doing this show I have prayed that my time here would not just be “time” I want it to be meaningful. I want to have a purpose while I am here for these 10 days. The first few days were rocky. I just felt like taking a bus home…I’ve never taken the bus but I wanted to then lol But after a long day of meeting thousands of people I felt like going to Wal-Mart to get what we needed crazy huh? But as I was waiting for my brother to checkout I took a seat on one of the many benches they have placed in the front for tired, worn out people lol As I was sitting there I was observing the people who were walking by some were happy, some were angry, some were little and without a care in the world like this little girl I met. She was walking next to her daddy and just aimlessly walking next to him and she was just smiling and grinning. You could tell she had so much love for her dad as she started to get closer she started walking towards me and not listening as her dad told her to stay with him lol She came right up to me and started talking (I couldn’t understand her but she was just smiling and talking her little heart out) She then got closer to me as though she knew me and started hugging my leg and just smiling and talking. It lasted for about 5 min and her momma came out of the restroom with another little one in her arms and he was just smiling if I didn’t know better I would think I had something on my face lol I can never explain how it touched me, I needed that little girl to give me strength to keep on keepin on. I walked away from there thinking what if I came to God that way??? With no inhibitions, I came to him with complete trust like this little girl, yes she was young but she trusted me. What if I was more like the little 19 month old and just came to God like a child??? She had hope and love in her eyes what if I came to God with Hope and Love and yes I would have problems but I would have HOPE that those problems wouldn’t matter once I got into the presence of God. What if I walked next to him like she did her daddy??? I also have walked away from my “daddy” like she did hers….But when she listened to her dad finally he held her with the same abounding love, he protected her the same, he held her even tighter though. It may have been only for me and maybe everyone has had this revelation and if you have that’s amazing but my prayer while I’m here and for the rest of my life is that I would trust God and let him hold me like that little girl did. I will allow him to guide me and not go my own way. Yes she disobeyed her father but he never left her. He patiently waited while she came back.

And He called a little child to Himself and put him in the midst of them, and said, truly I say to you, unless you repent (change, turn about) and become like little children [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving], you can never enter the kingdom of heaven [at all]. Whoever will humble himself therefore and become like this little child [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving] is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. - Matt 18:2-4

I like what you have to say, nice job connecting scripture to the present.
