There are lots of things that I want to share but today I am most thankful for the spiritual growth that I am experiencing right now. Psalms 131:2 described it all.
Surely I have composed and quieted my soul ; Like a weaned child rests against his mother, My soul is like a weaned child within me.
I thought that there’s nothing more peaceful than a little baby nursing, for those mothers who breast-fed they knew, that tiny little baby can be so demanding. When he’s hungry, he’ll start crying and won’t quit and stop until the mother gets him and gets the milk he needs. His needs must be given instantly.
The weaned child moves one more step toward maturity. He is no longer demanding and the mother doesn’t need to satisfy his needs instantly. When we are with God we are like weaned child with his mother. We stopped pushing our Father to accomplish what “WE” want Him to do for our lives. And that’s where I am right now. I am thankful for He changed my heart into a willing heart who accepts all that He is showing and teaching me. Like a weaned child I’m beginning to move beyond the place of acting out of “selfishness and empty conceit”. Rather I can say I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances (Philippians 4:12).
I thank the Lord for He moved me to a place of trust, to trust Him no matter what.
