Recently, I had a phone conversation with my daughter and she mentioned that my two-year-old granddaughter is driving her nuts. She described the ability of this tiny headstrong girl to throw a fit accompanied with all the wailing, crying, and commotion that she can muster–just to get her point across. But, the crazy part occurs when in the middle of all this noise and confusion, she will stop, turn to her mother, and say through her tears, “I all done cwying now. I wuv you very much Mommy,” and off she trots to play. What do you do with that little imp? As I thought about her response, it crossed my mind that we often fret, complain, cry, or whine to our Heavenly Father about something we think we need or an incident that has occurred — wanting it done our way and NOW. However, His response is “Stop crying, my beloved daughter. I love you very much and let me take care of it.” I pray that as we grow and mature in our walk with the Lord, we will no longer feel the need to throw one of those fits, but rather turn the problem over to Him and trust Him with the solution. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. 1 Peter 5:7 (NLT) Now, go play!
