Matthew 12:50

For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.”

Recently I observed a battle being waged between a mother and her daughter who was about two years old. I think they call them the terrible twos!  The stand-off occurred in a public square. The little girl stubbornly sat down and refused to walk with her mother.

The frustrated mother walked about fifteen feet away from her daughter and waited for her to come. The girl threw a fit, but she would only walk one or two steps before sitting down once more.

It was more than five or ten minutes before the little one finally gave in and came to her mother. By that time she was bawling her eyes out and both she and her mother were miserable.

As I have relived that scene, I could see the face of God watching us as we fought for our own will instead of yielding to His will. Just as that little girl could not care for herself, so we are not able to adequately know what lies ahead for us. By yielding our will to His will, we allow the Lord to care for us.

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
