My son is 5. What a complicated, amazing, difficult, challenging, beautiful person he is. Today his mission to make me
"You still have some. If you finish and you're still hungry, I'll give you more."
"But I waaaaaaaaaaaaaaant more. I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeed more. This is a little bit of noodles and I need a LOT of noodles"
"If you are hungry, eat what's in your bowl. If you're still hungry, then I will give you more. Don't worry.
"But I want more NOW!"
I want more now.
Has God ever failed to provide for me? No. Has my family ever gone hungry? No. Are we alive and grateful for it? Oh yes. But is that enough? Oh, never never. Because I want more now. Not more when we need it, when I've used all of this to its fullest, when more is the thing we must have in order to survive another day. Noooooooo.
I would like my more NOW, God. Now, I tell you! Just look at this measly quantity of noodles in my bowl. What if I run out and I'm still hungry? What if I run out and you don't notice? Yeah, definitely you should give me more now, you know just. in. case.
Give us this day our DAILY bread....
I swear I'm trying. Thanks to my boy, today's try just got a little easier.
