Let the Children Come...

Let the Children Come...

Luke 18:16-17 ESV “ But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” 

Do you ever have those moments where you reflect on childhood? 

When I think of children/childhood, these are the words that come to mind: 
Authentic, Amiable, Adventurous, and Brave. 

Children are incredibly dependent on their caretakers. This is exactly how we should be towards our Savior. Jesus is calling us to come to Him with all of our daily worries and concerns, in spirit and in truth. During this week, chase after more of Jesus authentically, with an amiable heart willing to change for His will to be done in your life. Be adventurous and brave while taking your relationship with Jesus deeper through digging into His Word of truth!  


PRAYER
Jesus, help us to know that we can run to You, no matter what the circumstances are around us. Help us to walk out child-like faith. Strengthen us to place our trust in You daily. Amen.

How often do we find ourselves feeling pulled in too many directions, leaving little of us to truly honor the people and things we choose to devote our time and energy to? When I try to imagine what this strive for “worldly balance” looks like, I imagine a juggler or plate-spinner trying to keep things in perfect rhythm without dropping the ball (or plate, if you will). If you don’t know what I am referencing with plate-spinning, pause your reading and go look it up. Prepare to experience you...

Devotion over Distraction

How often do you find yourself talking to the Lord and all of a sudden catch yourself deep in a thought involving something that you’re anticipating - totally separated from your prayer? I often catch this happening on my commute to or from work, especially on those days that I hit snooze one too many times or try to squeeze in one more thing and don’t prioritize giving the Lord space to join me in the step-by-step parts of the day.

As I write this, I can’t help but imagine God’s presence with me like a loving father who has graciously been trying to help me solve a seemingly-tricky math problem on an assignment that I should have grasped a while ago. I can clearly envision Him giving me a warm smile and gently patting me on the back as the light bulb finally goes off in my head, and I feel so silly for not understanding the overall concept long before now. I hope this message resonates with my friends who grapple with d...
