Hebrews 13:5 KJV Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
Back when Skye was a puppy, a lot of things scared her. Acorns falling off trees, the oven door opening, a sack of potatoes falling over.
I remember the first time Skye saw a mechanical toy. It was a Barbie horse my little sister got for Christmas. We turned it on and let it walk to Skye, and Skye came over to me, sat down, and shoved her head into my chest. And just sat there until the whirring stopped. I felt so honored to be trusted by her.
God loves it when we trust him too. When we choose to run to God when we’re scared or confused instead of running away and hiding. There’s lots of scary stuff in this world, but God sees the big picture, and he’ll never leave us alone.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you so much for being there when we need you. Help us to learn to trust you more. In Jesus Name, Amen.
