Common Sense or Child-like Faith?

Did you ever realize how one aspect of your wellbeing, physical, emotional, or spiritual, affects the others? I never really thought much about it, but it’s almost like a common sense type of thing. But, once again, the wonderful pastor at my church made me have a revelation today about something I probably should’ve already know. And that revelation was: to really be able to be all that God made me to be all aspects of my wellbeing need to be cared for and nurtured. If my any part of my physical, mental, or spiritual wellbeing are being ignored then I am not going to be able to function at my hightest and I will not be able to carry our God’s will to the best of my ability.

Which makes total sense right? How come I never thought about this sooner? It seems almost silly sometimes, the things that God is teaching me that seem to be so blatantly common sense that it’s like a child would know it; but I guess that’s why Jesus says that we must have a child-like faith. I think, as adults, we tend to get over-analytical about things and we can’t fully understand what God has done for us because it just seems so unnatural – which it is, that’s why it is so amazing!

I love those little moments, esspecially on a long, busy, stressful day, where I am reminded just how amazing our God is. Because I believe and have faith in Him and in what He’s done, He helps me. When I am not at my best, when I haven’t slept well and I feel sick – He brings hope into my life. He brings me something that I never thought (before October 2011) that would ever be attainable to me.

Child-like Faith
My analyzing mind just couldn’t understand
How all of this was known and planned
Could it really be a love that I never knew
Knows all my steps and is seeing me through
Common sense statements seem to make sense
But I still stand here on the defense
Unfathomable actions from a Heavenly Father
And all He wants in return is an obedient daughter
Unconditional love, I just couldn’t get it
Since I’d never felt nor had I seen it
But when I step back and forget what I know
Let my guard down and begin to let go
The hungry child inside me shows God her heart
He scoops me up and sets me apart
But I must look up with innocent eyes
So I can understand what’s in the skies
A child-like faith is growing in me
It has opened my eyes, it has let me see
See my Father who loves with all of His soul
Who held on to me until I gave up control
