She Did It!
|by Keith Kendrick|
“She did it!” the little girl wailed, looking at her smushed ice cream cone drooling on the cement. When your the teacher of younger children, it is not uncommon to deal with the “She did its” or the “He did its”. But what is really behind these heart-felt wails of the children. Babes, sometimes so insecure because they have left their mother’s arms and for the first time are dealing with a circus of other children surrounding them. Some of them just long for the security of home where they knew what to expect. Others feel a sense of no control with all the bustling around them. In fear they lash out for a way to control their situations.
As adults we sometimes say the same thing but silently in our hearts. And our reasons are not much different. Insecurity, fear, loss of control, lack of acceptance. All these feelings can make us wail, “She did it.”
Ah, yes, we all struggle with the sin from the Garden. It’s in our DNA, but thankfully, Jesus can change us. Thank you from your FMF neighbor.
very true and wise
This insecurity started the moment Adam and Eve sinned by being seperated fom Gd. I think this is an inheritance from our first great-great-great grand parents many times over! It is only when Jesus touches our hearts that we are able to cry out with the taxcollector, knowing full well how guilty we are before God.
