The other day I was watching my son play on the floor. He’d head for a toy, then suddenly veer a different direction and go for something else. His ten-month-old attention span got me thinking about my own attention span.
Especially when it comes to Faith.
This journey I’m on is different than anything I’ve experienced before. In a very real way, I’m an infant in my relationship with Jesus. I find myself crawling toward one idea, then something else catches my attention and I follow that.
There are times I wish I were more focused, and didn’t jump from idea to idea, and thought to thought; I am doing this for the right reasons, and I’m doing it with God before me, not behind me.
I am taking my cues from Him.
It seems to be working out well, so far.
Some days are harder than others. There are days where, like my son I fall down and land on my butt. On those days I do just what he does, and I get up and try again.
I Know the LORD is There for Me
Just like I will always be there to help my son up, or make him feel better when he is hurt or scared, I know the LORD is there for me. Loving me, caring for me, and silently giving me strength to make it through life. I might be crawling still when it comes to my faith, and I may crawl in circles at times, but I never stop moving or trusting He will be there to lift me up when I need it.
