it reminded her of what God is talking to us as children of God. We make mistakes and then want to hold on to things. We want to do what we think is best and we won’t let go.  We hold onto all the pain, unforgiveness, anger, fear and grief. All we need to do is let go, lie still, face up to heaven and call out to daddy. Just like the children learning new skills in the video we need to learn to rest in God’s love, breathing and surrendering ourselves without a struggle. We may not understand how strong his love is, or how we will stay afloat but we can trust the one who teaches us to the way to be still.

No longer striving to do, but resting in being loved.
