Trust Me I Know What I'm Doing!

The other day I had an epiphany.  There are a lot of things I've said to my kids that God is also telling me. I too like my kids talk back, roll my eyes, grunt in disapproval, disagree, and cause dramatic scenes. Come on…you know you’ve done it to God too!

We are His children and like children we sometimes don’t understand the whys or the timing but we are asked to trust or obey or whatever the case may be. The point is parents just know better. They’ve lived a little longer. They’ve experienced life. Parents want to guide and provide a sense of safety because they’ve “been there.” 

There has been a number of times I’ve said the following to my kids:

- Don’t try to make sense of what I'm asking you to do; just do it!

- Trust me I know what I’m doing.

- You’re just going to have to be a little patient.

These are just a few examples of things I’ve said to my children and immediately felt God gently nudge me that I too should do the same. 

We have a heavenly Father who wants to help us in our journey of life. I know it’s easier said than done but trust Him for he knows what’s best.
