Believing Before

When I was a child, I believed easily.  I would look up at the leaves on the trees as I soared high on my wooden swing, see the sunlight piercing through them, and just know without thinking too hard that God was real and there.  I said my prayers simply and without questioning at night, somehow knowing that Someone bigger than me was listening and watching out for me.

I think that’s what Jesus meant when He said we have to have faith like a child.  Just trusting that all of this crazy life is taken care of by Someone bigger and smarter and more in control…not thinking so hard all the time.  I still believe today, and I’m so thankful for that.  Life is hard sometimes, and without Him, I wouldn’t know where to turn, who to give all these worries to who could handle them all.   He is stronger, and He will never leave.  Look up through the leaves today, feel the sunlight on your face, and just believe.  Slainte, Lisa
