I’m Not A Child Anymore 06|30

Friday, November 14, 2014 | Day 6 of 30

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [ chose you ], before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”  Jeremiah 1:5

New.

“Like newborn babies, [ you ] crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.” 1 Peter 2:2-3

Wisdom.

“But whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear or harm.” Proverbs 1:33

In my youth, I once heard wisdom – actually, I heard it speak up many times – yet I chose not to listen. I thought I was the master of my life. Boy was I wrong. I don’t have the “young and dumb” excuse anymore. In fact it should have died with the butterfly clip trend back in middle school. But I think I use my “young faith” as an excuse not to make big, b o l d spiritual moves.

God says to have childlike faith but that doesn’t mean to remain like a child. I think He wants me to keep the wonder and lose the whining. Keep the amazement and lose the hand holding. Gain wisdom. Seek truth.

Yea, I’m ready for that too.

Xo,

Raquel
