Hands held high!
“But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you.” Psalms 56:3 NLT
Ellie is fearless and I love it! Don’t get me wrong! She has wisdom beyond her years. There is a huge difference between being scared of something and having the wisdom to know when something is not right and choosing to walk away. She knows what to say “no” to and what to steer clear of. Like the other day at the park as I watched her come running up to me holding a pill. She picked it up off the ground. I threw it away and told her how proud I was of her. She said “I didn’t eat it cause it’s not safe!” I was proud. More so, I was relieved as I thanked God for answering our prayers of filling her with wisdom. Ellie lives life with her hands in the air fearlessly ready to take on the world all the while listening to that still small voice in her heart that leads her. I pray she never stops listening to that voice. That voice is God. I’m so thankful for the gift God gave us the day we met her. She is Always teaching me a lesson in life. She is Always showing me how to love like Jesus. Most importantly, she is Always showing me how to live life with my hands held high not holding onto fear and trusting Jesus in everything.
