“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5).
Grandma and Grandpa and all the family were going to get McKenzie’s favorite pizza as a surprise for her. It would be supper time in about twenty minutes, and her daddy would be home with her big surprise. Five-year-old McKenzie was having a great day with her grandparents in town and visiting for the week. It was so much fun baking cookies with her grandmother. About five or ten minutes before her dad and the pizza would arrive home, McKenzie got the “great idea” that it would be fun to have cookies and milk. You know that the answer was “no!” Even when Grandma said, “Honey, it is almost time for supper and you wouldn’t have room for it if we had cookies right now!” No amount of gentle persuasion worked. Finally McKenzie’s mother stepped in and said, “McKenzie Marie, the answer is no. Trust me.” Later that night the grown-ups were talking about the wonderful day. Grandpa mentioned that there are times he is just like McKenzie. “I’m sure that I think I know best, when the Lord actually is telling me, ‘Trust me!’” Little did they think at the start of the day that five-year-old McKenzie Marie was going to remind them of such a good lesson.
For today: How about you? Are you still learning what it means to trust in the Lord? Take a good reminder from little McKenzie Marie!
