How we adults wish sometimes that we could be the child, taken care of, looked after, protected, as we do for and with our beloved children. The world can be a scary place.
Yet we spend the greatest part of our lives being adults, called to personal responsibility, coping, courage, commitment, motivation, and dedication.
It’s easy to feel alone. We yearn for guidance, surety.
This is where trust and faith come in. It’s about something greater than ourselves.
It’s about knowing you are Divinely guided.
It’s about knowing the turns you take in the roads of life will work together for good.
It’s about knowing God can make a way where there “is no way.”
It’s about expecting the best, and then trusting you have Divine guidance.
It’s about experiencing that life includes love - and loss.
It’s about knowing the problems are not the problems, but rather are there to bring you to strength.
The Grace is there. But for the trust, the faith.
