We would all like to be SUPER SAINTS and say we trust God with EVERYTHING, but the truth is, some of us don’t.
I honestly thought that I trusted God with EVERYTHING. Until that morning I watched my son walk to school. I was angry. I was frustrated. “No one’s going to mistreat my son!” That and many other thoughts swarm my head while I policed his walk to school, from the bushes.
If God wasn’t going to do something quick about it, I was.
But then God reveal something to me that helped jump start my trust again:
In life we will have either elbow scratches that will quickly heal or broken arms that will cause greater pain. WHAT THE HECK DOES THAT MEAN?
Whether you are a child or an adult, life will bring you pain. And if you are anything like me, you hate pain. But sometimes we might have to deal with the elbow scratches of not having a friend for a season, walking alone to school or being rejected by others to prevent the broken arms of an unhealthy friendship, being caught in a serious situation from being involved with the wrong crowd or a future betrayal that could cost you almost everything.
God is allowing my son to experience the elbow scratches of life. But those scratches will heal a lot faster then a broken arm if he learn now at 9 that he’ll be okay and life gets better.
Alright God, you know what you are doing. Operation TRUST GOD WITH YOUR KIDS, is now in effect.
What do you need to TRUST God with? Your kids? Your marriage? Be honest. Be Free.
