Did you ever notice children at play thinking about when they grow up? Sometimes I just want to tell them..Don’t grow up…not likely that it will happen..
When I was a young teen, I decided to make the best of my circumstances and learn as much as I could and be the best at everything I tried. Mostly, I succeeded at lots…Quality Assurance, mechanical set up, engineering (classes not quite finished, and I won’t)…but it was all about me, and God really woke me up to it. It seemed that I was just building my self up with an “I will show them” attitude. Now as I drive a school bus, I look at the same eyes that I have been so familiar with, and the talk of being something..making a name for thier self…and praying for God to grab these hearts, and let HIM have HIS place in those little lives.
Now as an Adult I find that the hardest thing about growing up is growing down, learning to allow God to be God in my life, and learning to take HIS hand and trust HIM, to not give a second thought to what will happen tomorrow, because HE is right today is enough, and tomorrow is already undercontrol in HIM. Learning that its not about the name I make for myself…Its about ..Loving HIM with all my heart and all my soul, and all my mind, and all my strength…
In my heart HE has been saying that to me… “be the best at loving me..strive for that..”
So what do you want to be when you grow down?
