As we grow older, we tend to lose the child in us. Of course, every year we're getting older and older, but that doesn't mean that we can't still act like a kid every once in a while. I heard something that truly intrigued me this week. Someone said, "we should accept Christ as a child accepts each and everything you tell them immediately without questioning it."
This really struck me. It struck me so much because it's completely and utterly true. Once we start growing and experiencing the world for ourselves, we often come up with our own opinions and think all too logically about every single thing. Instead of placing our faith in Jesus, we question his existence.
I know I'm not the only one when I say that it is truly difficult to cast all your worries on the Lord and let him take it from there, but we should. Not only should we put our trust in the Lord, but we should carry over our childlike innocence into our daily lives period. We were put on this earth for a reason so, why should we spend it stressed out, and angry all the time.
We should security in the fact that we are where we're supposed to be in our life, and it's not anyone else's life but our own. So why not live it up? Why not experience everything you possibly can, and trusting that the Lord has your back. He is always there, 100% of the time. Even when you don't think he is, he's there.
Why is it so hard for us to relinquish control of our life, and accept things as a child would without question and as live as carefree as a child. Of course, there are things that we do actually have to worry about that kids don't, but there's no use in being worried all the time, especially about the things we can't change. So if there's anything you take from this, it's that we should have childlike faith and know that the Lord is our protector and in Him, we're more secure then we will ever know.
