messy-roomAfter some begging, I allowed my 4 year old to play with some kinetic sand in the living room.  I told her not to get it on the carpet and keep it kind of close together.  Well, of course, she got it all over the place so I made her clean it up.  She was taking forever and there were other things that she wanted to do and that I wanted her to do, but this mess really needed to be cleaned up before it got worse.

She tried on her own for a little bit then said, “Mama, will someone please help me?”  First, I replied with, “Did someone HELP you make that mess?”  She said no, then sadly looked down and kept cleaning. Then OUCH!  I heard God say, “Didn’t I help you clean up YOUR messes?”   So I got down on my knees and began picking up the sand with her.  I looked in her eyes and said, “Do you know why I’m helping you?”  She said, “so I can get it done faster?”  I simply said what my Father would say, “Because I love you.”

“For I hold you by your right hand–I, the LORD your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.” – Isaiah 41:13 NLT
