I was happy to see my friends Mike and Laura and their little one year old daughter walk into the coffee shop. They came over to my table to catch up and talk, and I was enjoying watching their daughter climb around and adventure. During the course of our talking, their daughter suddenly reached up for her bottle–which she wasn’t able to reach without help–and began to cry as if she would never be able to get it. I looked and laughed.
“Doesn’t she trust yet that you will give it to her?”
Laura laughed and said, “No, she throws a fit all the time even though we always give her her bottle!”
Suddenly, the Holy Spirit told me that their little girl was just like me. The last couple of weeks I have been whining and having a fit in my head, about not having found a job yet. Suddenly I realized that I was acting that way because I wasn’t trusting my Heavenly Father to give me what I needed when I needed it.
Matthew 6:31- “So do not worry, saying ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? or “What will we wear?’ …for your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
