And that's when the tears filled my eyes. I could try to argue that it was lack of sleep, but the truth is that I was completely overwhelmed by a sense that what I was imagining my daughter saying is actually what God wants to hear from each of us: "I don't have a care in the world as long as I'm in Your arms, Father. All of my worries and frustrations fade away because I know you've got me." I had a deep conviction that this could be what Jesus meant when He encouraged us to become like a child:
After all, Jesus made it clear that one who believes in His heavenly Father has no cause for worry:"Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven." (Mt.18:3)
So my marshmallowy insides have been revealed. So the whole world knows I'm a huge softie. Big deal! I'm working on placing myself in my Father's arms and letting go of all of my worries in order to trust Him completely. Perhaps you will, too."Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life . . . Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span?" (Mt. 6:25,27)
After all . . . Your Daddy's Got You.
