I have always been fascinated by children’s unquestionable belief in their parents, especially their mothers, and in the people they trust. With them, they can be anything, do anything, go anywhere as long as the have a nook to lay their heads and sleep when they tire…

Recently, I have been privileged to spend a lot of time with my child. Not in those happy lovey dovey days but through tough times. I wont say toughest times, because I know deep in my heart that it could be worse, and God said in all things we should praise Him. In my son’s eyes, I have learned to trust God. Child like trust…

It is easy to trust God and to love Him when things are easy. Sometimes when it is so tough, we start questioning Him. His intentions, His logic, His blessings, His wisdom, His power, His everything. When a child is unwell, that is when they are most comfortable with those whom they cherish the most. In their eyes, as long as they are with you, they are okay. When they wake up at night and the fever is so high, the only name on their lips is ‘mom’. When they have lost meaning in food and play and sleep, where they find most comfort is in their loved ones arms. When you pick them up and you have to travel, as long as they are with you, they have no worry in the whole world. Whether its a tuk tuk, motor bike, ricketty wickety old car or musso… Where they sleep, or wake, what they eat or drink, all the worries, if they have any, are a shadow as long as they are with you.

Can we put the same trust on our God who loves us the most? Can we believe deep in our hearts that even when we are in rock bottom, we are okay in His fold? Can we trust Him to always be there the way children trust their mothers? Can we have even a fraction of that trust? If we can get that trust, just a fraction, then all the worries that we have would fade into oblivion. This way we would live in divine joy and happiness in our life here on earth. When a child is with its mother, no worries are on its face, no matter how rocky the path is. Can we feel this secure in our Heavenly father’s love?

I hope, I pray, I wish for that peace that is found in trusting God, the way a child trusts its mom…
