Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Childlike Trust

Childlike Trust
Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.
Psalm 131:2

Of the hundreds of thousands of young people under the age of eighteen who go missing every year, more than a few are very small children who trusted a stranger's words. This willingness of children to trust is endearing, but can be life threatening at times. It's no wonder that Jesus used children to describe the kind of trust His followers should exhibit in the kingdom of God.
When was the last time one of your children asked you, "Will we have gas in the car? Will we have food to eat? Will I have clothes to wear?" A child trusts that certain aspects of his life will be taken care of by his parents. The Psalmist said he didn't concern himself "with great matters" or things "too profound" for him (Psalm 131:1). He trusted God with those things. He calmed and quieted his soul like a weaned child that rests contentedly in his mother's arms.
Let your concerns today be about cultivating a calm and quiet soul as you trust your Heavenly Father with the "profound" matters of life.

Revelation 1:1-2:29
