  1. It is amazing how it seems as if our children are teaching and taking care of us instead of the other way around.

  2. Thanks, Jessica! Such a cutie you’ve got there!
    Yeah, watching my 6 month baby and 3 yr toddler enjoy life everyday without worry, I cannot help but long to grow in my trust of God. Everyday becomes a new adventure if I can be like a child before God.

  3. This is such a lovely analogy Jessica. I am a Grandmother now, but I remember those days of trusting little ones. I have found it to be the most important lesson the Lord has ever taught me – total surrender and complete trust in Him. In all honesty, it has been a life-long lesson. I sometimes have to go over the same territory again and again, but when I really do trust completely He gives me such a sense of peace. As you’ve said, like a little child simply trusting in the care of a loving parent.

  4. Such a great observation… I can honestly say I trust Him, but I can’t honestly say that I have “hope sparkling in my eyes.” That was such a great visual, and I am going to be thinking of it often…

  5. I know exactly what you are talking about and it’s one of the things I am currently struggling with. This is just what I needed tonight.

  6. Wow such a simple truth but such a profound difference if we apply this simple truth to my life! Thank you for that wonderful story! Thanks for reminding me I am simply a child of God and can rest all in Him.Thank you Jesus

  7. Such a wonderful post Jessica. It is a daily prayer of mine to trust like a child. Some days I listen to the yearnings of my heart spending more time with The Father and other days I run away and throw a tantrum about how unfair life is. Maybe one day…I’ll get it right all the time.
    Blessings and Grace to you this day.
