This morning, I’m struck by Hannah Whitall Smith’s description of a child fully surrendered to the care of others. She wishes for us to understand the joy and freedom of living as a “child in the Father’s house.” A child lets others meet her needs. A child lets others plan a beautiful day. A well cared for child expects only good of the day. She writes, “. . . [the child in the Father’s house] find his paths made ready, opening out as he comes to them day by day and hour by hour.”
I love thinking about God preparing our good and lovely paths today and how they will open out for us hour by hour as we live joyfully and without care as a child in our Father’s house.
