2 Corinthians 4:18
“...while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
My son’s adorable. I love it when he makes little noises to himself. I’m blessed in that he’s a pretty happy kiddo. His wide smile and little laughs can brighten a moment in a flash - and he does it pretty often.
It’s a good thing, too. I’m pretty sure that God made it that way, or fewer kids would make it to adulthood. You can be totally frustrated with him - for any number of reasons - and then he whips out a smile and some adorable little sound. Suddenly, your frustration is pushed back by a rush of laughter. He’s just so cute!
I am thankful that God created cuteness. It’s a reminder to me of God’s love. It's something that I can see in the physical world that helps me remember the things which I can't see. It's a mental kick to take a step back in the middle of a tough situation. To remember that God’s in control. It’s a personal check. Why are you frustrated, and will it really matter in light of eternity (or even a few hours)?
Are you frustrated with something? Take a step back. Don’t try to control it - give it up to God. He was always the One in control of it anyway.
