child like faith

i am have been learning a lot about faith through my son. yesterday, i was taking micah to preschool and he said ‘mommy i just prayed to God’ and i said oh what did you tell him and he said ‘i asked God to move the clouds away and bring in the sun’. i told him that sometimes God wants us to have the rain and clouds because we need it more than the sun. i said this so that he wouldn’t be disappointed if the sun didn’t make it’s appearance.

a couple of hours later when i was on my way to pick micah up from preschool the sun came out! every single time that micah has prayed for God to move the clouds away so the sun can come out, it happened!

i recently had been stressing out about micah’s schooling that is in two years. yes, i said two years and i’m already stressing out. there are so many options- entering the lottery for a good public school, lottery for a good public charter school, his neighborhood school (that isn’t so great), the high cost of private school or homeschool. i know that all of this is out of my control and that since God made micah he knows what is best for him.

as i saw the clouds moving away and the sun coming out this verse popped in mind matthew 6:26- ‘look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. are you not much more valuable than they?’

i seek and desire to have the faith of my child-
