I remember one time when I was 7, I didn’t want to come with my parents to pick up my sister from a birthday party. Thinking I was a big girl, I wanted to stay home alone. Whining and complaining I tried to persuade my parents that I was old enough to stay home alone. It didn’t work.
Now when I look back at that moment, I realize that staying home alone at 7 is quite ridiculous. My parents were right, it’s something you look back at and think, “Wow, I thought I was so smart… I was such a baby!” The point is though, that they were still watching out for me.
Even right now in life I think I’m so grown up – sooner or later I’ll realize I’m not and that they will always be watching for me because I’m their little baby.
I think a lot of times we forget that we are God’s baby. Even when we don’t do what God wants us too, or sin… He still watches over us. When we try to persuade God, God is ALWAYS right. Whatever we do or say, we will ALWAYS be God’s little baby.
Just know when no one is there, God is still watching us.
Wow it’s been quite some time since I’ve blogged. Ahh, life’s been crazy. It’s been a mostly good crazy when I think about how productive my summer has been…but then I think about how my relationship with God has been throughout the summer…and I’m disappointed.
Because of my favorite subject…math, I seem to look at things that way. (Don’t judge! haha) I looked at the “graph of my relationship with God.” From December – March it kept going up!…then in April, May, and especially summer…the line has fallen short – too short. I barely make time for talking to God. To be honest, the cause of the decrease in the graph is laziness. I have plenty of time…I just have other things I want to put my energy towards.
Have you ever had a friend that you hang out with when there’s no one else? That’s always the worst feeling… doing it and having it done to you. Either way, I feel like a lot of times we do that with God. When we’re in times of trial, we always look up to God, but when we have nothing big to worry about, we take for granted all the blessings He’s bestowed upon us. This makes me feel guilty. Unbearably guilty.
I’m trying to push the laziness away. I can’t let this hinder my relationship with God. I need to keep trying. Keep my eyes open, and just get a big hug from God. I’m gonna take it one step at a time.
