Faith of a child.

You are where you're supposed to be.

Last night I was babysitting, this morning I was babysitting. I work with children all day, everyday. My life revolves around children.I know each one by name, I know their likes, dislikes, I know their cries and I can tell the difference between a fake cry, boo boo cry or an ashamed cry. It brings me absolute joy to hear them say my name or offer me all sorts of gifts. (rocks, leaves, sand...) I change diapers and I kiss on ouchies, I wipe tears away and I bring a smile to their face. Seriously I have the best job ever.

Life may seem hard, may seem unfair, may seem unforgivable, put a child in front of me, and I see Jesus in them. Don't ask me how or why, I just do. Maybe God knows my happy place, He knows what brightens my day so He shines through kids. I admit kids aren't easy, definitely require a lot of patience, but in the end..looking at a bigger picture- they are just the best.

So it hit me... Just as these kids, they are excite…

Talk to Him.

Talk to Him.

Seems like the answer to everything, as it should be.

Prayer. It is not our last resort if all else fails, it is the first thing we run to. It is not something to take lightly, prayer is powerful.

So many of us have fallen into the trap of thinking that prayer takes so much time, sometimes we sit with God and don't even know what to say to Him. Imagine a friend you have not talked to in a while, isn't awkward when you finally sit down and talk, you try and fish for things to say or you talk about superficial things. Sometimes we treat God that way, if we don't stay in constant communication with Him-meaning reading His word, studying His heart for His children, seeing His love for us-we lose the meaning of the relationship.

Prayer is not asking God to do this or that, it is not trying to convince Him that certain things should be done this way or that way, it's simply praise. It is kneeling before your God and being still soaking in His glory and right…
