You get the picture.
The other day was full of it. I started out rather patient, but as her lack of trust in my every move continued, I found myself wanting to cup her little cheeks and say, "Why do you keep questioning me???"
Yep. And of course, that's when God stepped in, chuckling lightly in my ear, because I SO do this to Him.
Not out of disrespect. Not out of anger. But because I truly think--at times--that I know better. How incredibly silly is that? Yet I think I need to remind Him of what I see, forgetting that He sees an entirely different picture. Or I think I need to remind Him of the direction of my path, when He's the one who created it. Sometimes it's simply that my knees are shaking at the leap He's asking me to take, and I want to be assured the ground on the other side is solid...forgetting that He's never allowed me to fall someplace He can't catch me.
Our faith is a constant work in progress. And in moments like this, moments where He allows a glimpse of things from His side, I'm amazed again at the depth and width of His love. Of what He puts up with and His bottomless patience with His children.
And challenged to trust Him just a little deeper.
Okay. So your turn. How does God challenge you to trust Him even more?
