Five Minute Friday- Linking up with my sisters hosted by Kate Motaung. A time to let go of edits and specifics and let the words flow. Each Friday a new writing prompt is given and the timer is set. Ready…
My mind is constantly blown by all the things you can learn from a little one who is less than two years old. His three foot nothing, 30 pound frame is one smart cookie. I may be a tad biased, but our boy knows a thing or two. Over this past week I have marveled at the confidence in his voice when he calls out for me or his dad.
When he awakes in the morning we hear, “Momma, Momma, Daddy, Daddy, Momma…” He is up, and he knows he is not alone all he has to do is call our names and we show up at his door.
When I am straightening the house or checking an item off of my to-do list and little man needs a drink or snack he calls, “Drink, Momma. Drink.” I hear his feet across the living room floor as he searches for me folding clothes in our bedroom. He may not have been able to see me, but he knew he was not alone.
While enjoying the morning sunshine he runs around the house digging in dirt and finding rocks, bugs, and who knows what else along the way. “Momma, momma…” He says with sweaty face as he holds hands covered in mulch up to my face. He didn’t look to see if I was there before he said my name, he knows I am always there. I’m his momma, I’m not going to leave him alone.
If my crazy energized toddler can cry out to me with confidence knowing he is never alone, why is it I sometimes struggle to approach my Heavenly Father with the same confidence?
Let’s approach Him with confidence, as he says…”The Great I AM, The LORD is here…”
This song has been on repeat in my car this week and sparked the direction of this post, it’s hard to beat Rend Collective.
