One of the greatest parts of being a mother are the many lessons about God that our children are able to teach us. When my children were infants, they had this beautiful way of bringing so many scriptures to life for me, and they had no idea that they did it.
Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather in barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:25-26
God tells us not to worry about our needs being met, for He is in control. Yet many of us are constantly worried about bills being paid, our jobs being secure, our cars not breaking down, etc. Sometimes those worries try to rise up in me as well but then I take a look at my children, they don’t have a care in the world.
Yes, they get hungry and thirsty. Yes, they need clothes to wear and a place to rest their heads. But that doesn’t keep them up at night or keep them from being the happiest children ever.
They know that their needs are going to be met, so they don’t have to take on that burden. If only we trusted God the way our children trust their mothers (and fathers).
Often times, God will direct us to do something but we allow fear to stop us from moving in it. We have all kinds of excuses like not being qualified to do it or simply being fearful of the unknown. It happens to most everyone at some point. These days when fear tries to grab me, I again take another look at my children who seem fearless to me.
