Last night as Harper Jane crawled up on the coffee table for the upteenth time, I began thinking. She had no doubt that when she walked to the end of the table that I was going to reach out my arms and catch her.
She knew I would be there and she would not fall. She was so faithful that she would almost jump into my arms.
Isn't that the way my relationship with the Lord should be? When I get to the end of my proverbial table, shouldn't I just faithfully know that God will be there to catch me? Shouldn't I realize that worry and doubt do not belong in this equation?
I, so many times, try to carry the burden alone, not turning my worries over to Him. If only to follow Harper Jane's lead and just know that He will be there for me loyally, faithfully and allow myself to lean into Him.
I knew when I had children that I would be teaching them, but...Wow! What I can learn from my sweet kiddos! God is good!
