Four days a week I work as a nanny for three wonderful kids. Though they have all tried to kill eachother at one time or another, they really are a joy to be around. And eventhough im supposed to be an adult now, I dont feel like one, so it is nice to be able to be a kid with them. We do homework, ride razor scooters, watch Spongebob, bake cookies, play alot of basketball, and I make ALOT of quesadillas. It was humbling when 10 year old Noah reminded me of Phillipians chapter 4 the other day. He said it was his favorite part of the Bible, and I decided that if he told me to read it again, then I definitely needed to. This is what I discovered:
"I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you have renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you have been concerned, but you had no oppertunity to show it. I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and ever situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through Him who gives me strength." Phillipians 4:10-13
I fail miserably every time I attempt to handle things on my own. It is only when I get on my knees that I can survive difficulties. It is Him who gives me strength and in Him I can place my trust.
