For those of you thinking this is just another "mommy-blogger" post, just stick with it, it will be worth it in the end, I promise.
My toddler is almost two and has a little separation anxiety and fear of the dark. (I think a little of it is an act, but part of it is genuine). How do I know? Well, when we put her down for a nap or bed, she usually cries and calls out, "Where Mommy go?", "Where Daddy go?" and she'll go thru the whole family. We go back in and reassure her once that we are still here, but it's time to sleep. We do have a nightlight too.
While we were going through one of these episodes the other day, God gave me a revelation that I'd like to share. I saw myself as the toddler. When things in my life seem dark and I feel alone, I cry out, "Where did you go, God?" and He showed me He is still there on the "other side of the door". Just because I can't "feel" Him, doesn't mean He isn't there. He is. Watching over me. Always. I just have to trust Him, just like I am asking my toddler to trust me that I will not abandon her. That and look for his light in the darkness and be a part of making it brighter.
A list of ten. Or a list of diez things.
