When I was a little girl I thought I could be anyone I wanted to be, do anything I wanted to do, work anywhere, reach any goal, make any dream a reality. The sky was the limit.
Somehow, something happened along the way…I learnt how to be afraid, how to back down. I quickly realized that confidence is something that you can lose just as quickly as you find it; I found out that not everyone wants me to succeed in life.
A few days ago, I was outside watching Bailey playing with her daddy. She was jumping into his arms and pretending that she could fly. “Mama look at me! Look at me mama, Im flying!” She thought she could fly and there's nothing I could say to her to convince her otherwise. She wasn't scared or anxious, because she knew without a doubt that her daddy would catch her every time.
In the Word, it says we should have a child-like faith and it got me thinking about what it is that's so beautiful about such faith?
Then I realized what it was. It simply believes God. It doesn't try to reason or bring things down to our human level of understanding. Children don't try to ‘wrap their head around things’, evaluate or second guess them, they just believe without reservation. I love that!
So it got me thinking of what I thought I could do before someone told me otherwise…before my humanity stepped in and told me I couldn't and before my circumstances reminded me of all the reasons ‘why not’.
So, I've decided to go on a journey.... back to the place of complete trust, where I kept a sense of awe and wonder. Ive decided to return to the time where my heart wasn't second guessing, and all that remained at the core was childlike unwavering faith.
Feel free to join me…
All my love,
