So this weekend at church, I was standing in the lobby with a friend when a little girl walked up to me and introduced herself. She is one of the band member’s daughter and apparently never meets a stranger. So the friend I was talking to slunk off quickly and I was standing there looking at this little girl. She quickly told me her name and then grabbed my hand and told me she wanted to show me something. I was a little astounded that she was so open to dragging a stranger around in the church. But before I was able to point that out to her she was pulling me through the lobby and told me to close my eyes. “No peeking!” She said. I hesitantly closed my eyes and let her drag me all around the church. Every few seconds I would open my eyes and look around just in case, and she caught me every time. It was kind of funny, but she got mad each time and she huffed and looked at me like I betrayed her each time and then she would stop walking completely until my eyes were shut closed and tight. We did this about four or five times until we finally got to our destination. She told me to open them and I’d be in some dark kids’ room. Then after I half laughed for her dragging me in there, she told me to close my eyes again and we did it all over. By the third time and running into a few walls and doors, after she really got upset with me, I finally gave in and released control. I shut my eyes as tightly as I could and let her take over completely. Hmm, doesn’t that sound familiar? Like with a certain someone named God? Yes.
He says, “Hey, trust me!”. You don’t know where you’re going, you try to peek, you hold your hands up to protect yourself just in case and you are incredibly hesitant to do so. He just keeps saying, “trust me, trust me.” Do we ever trust him like that? Much like the third time she walked me somewhere, I finally gave in and just let her take control? It wasn’t too bad, but she ran me into a few walls. But that’s life and it’s expected.
Give God control this week! Let God lead you to wherever He has in mind and don’t argue. Click To Tweet Just close your dang eyes and follow. You don’t need to ask questions, you don’t need to peek just to check to see if you’re going in the direction that you want and you don’t need to hold up your hands for protection. Just let go. You may run into a few walls and you may trip or he may take you in some odd dark room haha but let it go. It’s up to him to lead you, it isn’t your choice and you can’t control everything in your life. Let him have it, you’re lucky he lets you have the reigns on most things anyways.
Thank-you little girl for giving me something to think and write about, it was an interesting adventure meeting you.
Have a good week family!
