Early this morning, my almost 2 year old woke up crying for me. I went in to comfort her, but she was wide awake. She kept telling me things like: "I'm so excited." "I want to play with toys." "I have good ideas." "I want breakfast." "I am so cute." "I want to brush my teeth." I kept telling her to "be still". This is very atypical, but it did last for a loooong time. While I was laying in the floor beside her bed, holding her hand, I was thinking this is probably how God feels at times. He wants us to rest in Him, we want to push our ideas on Him. He wants us to trust his ways, we try to do our own thing. Today, I'm even more aware of my need to be still before him.
