Faith As A Child

I'm making a quick visit to post my devotional which will be up on Laced With Grace. Hope your summer is going well dear friends. 

“Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and
knows the One who is leading.” Oswald Chambers
When I was a child, I never worried about the future. I didn’t fret about what tomorrow would bring. I didn’t try to control everything in my small world. I didn’t worry about where my life was heading or the circumstances I found myself in. I had no thought about how I would get my next meal or if the bills would be paid on time. I simply trusted that my Mom and Dad would take care of all that.
It wasn’t even a conscious thought. From the time of my birth I had been taken care of – fed, clothed, loved, and protected. When it was time to travel, I didn’t worry about the weather or the driving conditions or keeping safe. I allowed myself to be carried to the car, strapped in and taken wherever it was my parents wanted to take me. When I was sick, I didn’t have to frantically look around for help. My Mom and Dad took care of me.
When I was old enough to get around on my own two little legs, I didn’t have to worry about where I was going. There was always a hand to hold on to. If I happened to misstep and fall, there was a loving hand to pick me up and loving arms to comfort me. I was never allowed to wander too far off. Someone who loved me was always watching.
And now I am grown…
