Waiting…

crepes 6-19 5 quoteSometimes, it seems wicked men flourish while good men suffer and perish; evil runs rampant, and good cannot be found. That’s when we must remember God is, indeed, in charge. At times, it seems God has abandoned us, but this is never the case. He’s always with us, and if we simply stay focused on Him, we’ll be at peace and know He is surely working His will in all things. Even though I’ve gained some understanding, I haven’t scratched the surface. With each morsel of knowledge God gives me, my hunger grows, and like a baby bird waits with open mouth and cries out to its mother for food, I wait with open heart and cry out to the for more knowledge of God and His love.

Slow Down!

toddler (1)When we were toddlers, we were eager to know everything about everything, and we’d often inadvertently put ourselves in harm’s way. The world was full of things we wanted to know more about, and we wanted to explore it all as fast as we possibly could. Fortunately, there was usually someone watching over us, teaching us, and steering us away from the bad stuff.

We’re much the same when it comes to our spiritual lives; we want to know and understand it all now. But we need to go slow, taking baby steps, until we learn our way around God’s wonderful world.

If we stay focused on God and His love for us, He’ll watch over us, guide us, and protect us. And, He’ll teach us all we need to know, when He knows we’re ready to know it.

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child. Now that I have become a man, I have put away childish things.                            1 Corinthians 13:11
