It never ceases to amaze me the life lessons God shows me through my kids. At every age and every stage of life I have some pretty cool revelations on life and how we approach it. The most current lesson was on focus. As you can see above, my lil Sydney-Boo had focus a lot of things as she scooted along on her brand new Christmas present.
The real lesson I learned is at the heart of a few things I’ve been going through personally and professionally this last year. Just like my lil’ Princess, when things are scooting along and seem to be going right, it’s easy to take our eyes off the road. In her eyes, everything was going great…the scooter was doing what it should….the road was there….and look, wow there are bunch of other things passing by that are cool to watch at this speed and height!
So, that’s what happens when we get comfortable where we are…when it all feels like it’s going good, and there is no real disaster lurking in the foreseeable future. Little did Sydney know, just 30 seconds and 3 feet to the left was a road that had cars much bigger and faster that could easily make her a speed bump.
That’s when we enter the Father…both figuratively and realistically. You can see the shadow of the Father here, ummm, yep I’m that guy who takes pics and videos everything (a.k.a. proud father). Just like our Father, our God, He is with us every step of the way to make sure we don’t end up a speed bump. He guides and directs, with a voice and a hand just in time…everytime. The result is a child who is smiling and keeping her “eye on the road.”
Where is our Father God leading you? What path are you traveling with Him this next year? Listen to His voice…Feel His hand, as he guides and directs.
