Beyond My Wildest Dreams


I thought that today might be a nice time for another in my "Lessons From The Kids" series. It's a short and simple one, but I think of it often. Leave me your comments to let me know how it applies to you...I'd love to hear.

Have a great weekend!

(Clara, 2 years)

I was handing out little vanilla cookies to the kids. I had my hand in the box, and was pulling out 3 cookies for Clara. Before I could get my hand out of the box, Clara said, “Not one, mommy…TWO please”. So I gave her her greatest wish at that moment – two cookies. If only she had simply held out her hand and trusted me, she would have had more that she even dreamed of asking for!

It struck me how often I ask for something that I think would be wonderful…instead of simply holding out my hand and trusting the Lord to give me what He has in mind for me. Something tells me that the blessings would be beyond my wildest dreams...


“If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” Matthew 7:11

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23:5-6

Lovely thought. Timely for me today as I am waiting on the Lord. I pray I wait with open handsin trust.
