Childlike Faith 

Frank called me the other day from work to say that he found a one day robotic camp that Maggie could attend. I asked Maggie if she would be interested, and of course she said yes. 

Brain starts spinning. Worrying commences. So, in true helicopter mom fashion I ask, “Are you sure you want to go? You won’t know anybody.” Maggie shrugged her shoulders and said she didn’t care if she knew anybody there or not. She would make friends, and she would have fun. In the words of Deb Reynolds, “It would never occur to Maggie that she couldn’t do something.”

Fearless. God wants us to have that type of faith. The kind we had as children. The kind we had before the world jaded us. God wants us to step out boldly in confidence. He wants us to know that with Him by our side we can do anything. 

I keep praying for boldness. I pray that I won’t be hindered by fear or lack of faith. I pray that I won’t let my what-if attitude stop me from doing what God needs me to do. And every single day He uses my children to remind me that He is right by my side. Holding my hand. Leading the way. 

And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” -Matthew 18:3
