I find it amazing how God works in ways that we don’t expect Him to just because He can. I think I should’ve been expecting it, seeing as this is a constant occurrence. Obviously He’s doing it because He loves us. My solo experience was one of those moments. Going into it I wasn’t too concerned; this wasn’t my first solo so I kind of knew what to expect. I was excited; the weather was beautiful and everything seemed so peaceful. I wanted to have time alone to spend with God and process what He had been doing in my life the past year. Truth be told that I couldn’t focus so I gave up on that idea. I ended up spending the whole day running around. I felt like I was 10 years old again and I absolutely loved it.
What could’ve been a very stressful night ended up being one of the most carefree times so far in the past year. It was though God was telling me that I could trust in Him like I once did, and I could have full peace and assurance in Him to care for me and respond to me in love. I had forgotten how good it felt to be able to admit to myself that I was beyond my capabilities and be okay with that fact because I knew I was being looked after. My solo night ended up being God’s gift of reminding me of what my relationship with Him should look like, and I am so thankful that He brought me through that process.
Mark 10:15, “I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
