    “The point of your life is to point to Him. Whatever you are doing, God wants to be glorified, because this whole thing is His.” – Francis Chan

    Yesterday we learned of a bump in the road.  It made me a smidge bit nervous. I truly believe that God had lead us to this place and I am going to trust that it would all work out.  I said I was “expectantly waiting”, but still my heart continued to beat a little faster than it should have on a couple of occasions throughout the day.  I turned it over and over and over again to God.  I had been in this position once before and it turned out all right.  I kept reminding myself of that fact during my moments of doubt.

    During one of my moments of doubt, I asked the children to pray with me.  Jasmine reminded me again that “God’s got this!”.  She had said that fact multiple times throughout the day.  She told me she wasn’t worried because she knew it was all going to work out.  My favorite Jasmine moment though was when I asked why this had to happen.   To which Jasmine replied, “If this is an “only with God” thing then maybe God wanted everyone to be sure.”  I told her I was pretty sure that the story would give all the glory to God and people would see we were just being obedient to where He was leading and she said, “See!”, like it all made perfect sense.

    The faith of a child.  They are so sure that God will come through.  Maybe it’s because they haven’t been let down, maybe it’s because they aren’t jaded by all the evil in the world, or maybe it’s just because they know something that we adults have forgotten, either way I need to get me some.
