The other day my 8 year old was asking me a lot of questions.
I mean a lot.
I think I tuned her out. Not on purpose, but I think I did.
Unless she was really saying,"blah, blah, blah, blah, blah", because that's what I heard.
I know, what a horrible Mom.
Definitely not the best thing to admit if I were trying for the Mother of the Year award.
But I can't help it sometimes.
I do love the sound of her voice though if that counts for anything.
Anyway, as a Mom, when bombarded with question upon question, have you ever given the deep, logical answer of "Because I told you so"? I have and I still do sometimes, but child #3 doesn't settle for such an answer. She wants something more. Something that makes her brain roll around until she has an understanding of why I answered her the way I did.
Have you ever gotten the answer "Because I told you so" from God?
If so, has it been good enough or do you press Him for a deeper reason of why not or why?
Is His grace sufficient enough for you or do you need to know what happened behind the scenes?
I don't know. Sometimes I wish He would just spell it out really clear.
But then again, perhaps He does in His Word and I just totally miss it.
Maybe I tune Him out like I sometimes do with Liv.
Because if I'm real honest, sometimes when I'm reading His Word all I see is "blah blah blah", but that's because of me, not Him.
Oh how I must focus more on Him and His Word and not take my time with Him for granted.
And I need to do the same with my girl. Because soon all she will hear from me is "blah blah blah" and right now...she hangs on my every word. She's attentive when I speak and she wants to learn from me.
Now that's the type of daughter I need to be to my Heavenly Father.
