I was bummed
See this post isn't really about potty training my daughter. While I was thinking about the text, in church, it made me think about how my life is kinda like potty training. I envision God as the nice dad who is patiently teaching me how to live life without "going" on myself. I envision my life kinda like my daughter. I am trying so hard to go in the toilet but every now and then I just can't hold it and mess up.
The great thing about God, in these situations, is that he doesn't blow up on us. He isn't livid when I can't make it to the toilet.
I love how God cares about me so much
I love how God takes the time to teach me in life
I love how God encourages me to grow up
I love God is right there when I mess up to help me get clean
Life is pretty much like potty training. We are all going to mess up (and make a mess). Some of us are further along in the process of others. Some of us get trained quicker than others. Some of us still wet the bed at night. Some of us can hold it all day and all night. The thing to remember is that we serve a gracious God who is right there to help us as we venture through life and figure it out. God wants to be there to help everyone of us grow in life the question is: "Will we accept the help?"
