Faith Like A Child

The other day Rylee said this prayer: “Thank you for helping us when we are broken!”

The Gavin followed by asking Jennifer how God fixes us. He then went on to list that God fixes all our body parts, and how he fixes our hearts and when he lays us down, he holds us in his arms.

I am far from a perfect parent. I am short tempered, impatient, self-absorbed, arrogant, stupid, and on and on (okay I can stop now you get the point).

But in those moments I am proud. I am proud, not because I can take credit, but because in my failure God still redeems and teaches little children his love. And in return those little children remind their adult parents what God is all about.

“Out of the mouth of babes!”

Lord, give me the heart like a child!
