took my kids to the park today after work, so they could play. who knew that my teenager would teach me a lesson…
this is what happened: after some lovely bickering through the kfc drive thru, we finally got to the park. Before long they had decided to play a game of tackle football. i tried to make them play touch football. they laughed at me.
teams: kavi and jax vs. quint; blaikie was playing with her soccer ball.
after a few minutes Quint asked Blaikie to come play. (read: teenager invites his elementary aged sister to join his team, mother tears up with joy) She was scared, intimidated, resistant. She didn’t know what to do. She said “What do I do?”
He said “just run behind me.”
when the play started, he gave her the ball, held off the opposition, and shielded her so she could run behind him safely.
This made me think about how God goes before us. When we are scared, intimidated, resistant. When we don’t know what to do. When we say “What do I do?” He says, “Just run behind me.”
he gives us the ball, runs ahead, holds off the enemy, shields us and claims the victory.
i don’t think my son was trying to teach this lesson, but i know the Holy Spirit was using Him to teach me… I think I’m gonna just run behind Him.
