It was one of those moment when the world seemed to be twirling around you. It was then, she caught my eye, she had long soft hair and big brown eyes! She probably wasn't older than 6, she didn't look tired or cranky, she didn't look like she was in a hurry, she was excited. She had a big smile that lit up her face from ear to ear and as she stood in the security line with her parents and sister, she seemed at peace. More than likely, she didn't fully understand where she was going, how she would get there or even who would provide for the necessary components of her flight... the truth is she probably didn't even care! She was excited! She was going on trip and had full confidence that all her needs would be met.
Then it hit me, that's exactly what God wants us to be like with Him. The essence of child like faith. Belief and trust in divine providence with joy and enthusiasm. Truly stated, " the more you know, the more you care". Childlike faith is easier seen than performed. And yet that is the only way to Jesus Christ, in the midst of failure, doubt and discouragement. A faith that holds and weathers it, with excitement to see what He has for us in the coming future.
"Next" ! The words jolted me back into reality and got my feet moving in the direction of the scanners, I watched as she serenely placed her jacket and purse in a tray and waltzed through security to her fate on the other side. I will more than likely never see that girl again in this life, but, the thoughts will go on in my head and I hope to apply that same serene trust and faith on my journey and walk with Jesus, even in moments of chaos.
"Wherever you are, be all there."
