Whenever you are doing what you do in life, aim to do it with the presence and wonder of a child. Don’t question whether you chose the right color lipstick after you already put it on; don’t regret the comments you made in the office meeting or become so consumed with what others might think that you do not express yourself at all. This world is your playground. Like children, be present in all that you do, and you will inevitably experience all the simple joys God has for you! ~ Lawton, Sabrina Universal. Each Day a Gift: A Gratitude Devotional for Women: 90 Devotions to Make a Habit of Praise and Thanks (p. 111). Althea Press. Kindle Edition.
And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change
and become like little children, you will never
enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3 (NIV)
Can you imagine a little child choosing a color
to draw with or a shade of lipstick and rethinking it,
changing? Does a little child rethink conversations,
regretting what they said? Or worrying what the others
thought of you? Can you just for one day have the world
as your playground? Can you just for today
be present in all that you do. Do you dare
to experience all the simple joys God has for you?
