Today I was reading a wonderful passage:
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest."

Matthew 11:28 NIV

I was watching my toddler sleep and was thinking how relaxed & contented she was curled up in her bed- she wasn't listening for anything, her total trust was in us being there and keeping her safe. 
If she does wake in the night - there is a lil soft call "mum..." she does NOT lie there and reason- "should I call," " will she hear me,"  "does she even want to hear me,"  "is she trying to teach me a lesson?" -she just calls: for her that is who I am- I am mum and she is 3 & C  has her simple childlike faith & trust in me to meet her needs. 
I need to re-kindle that simple faith in my heart. That child like dependence that stops reasoning, stops doing all "on my own" and whisper out or even shout out- as the case may be "Father" and give my fears, troubles, worrys and weakness to Him- He
has even written it down to remind us that He WANTS us to come to Him when we are burdened and troubled!
Most times my lil C doesn't even always explain- she calls. I come and I see & know what she needs- So does the Father- I just need to call a little more often. 
Have an awesome day!!
