Baby Timmy’s New Experience

We have been blessed to have our son and daughter in law and our first grandchild baby Timmy with us for awhile. We have just been having so much fun watching him grow and discover new things and yesterday was another new experience for him. He was graduating from his morning bottle to fruit and cereal, pears and rice to be exact. Mommy scooped him up as usual and headed with him into the other room to feed him which was all very normal for him but when she set him in his swing to feed him instead of nursing him he was having none of that. A serious protest cry was immediately heard throughout all the house but she undaunted by the objections continued on her mission to introduce another source of nutrition to her little son. After the first spoonful and he realized this was much more tastier than what he had been receiving all objections ceased and he was all too happy to enjoy his pears and cereal.

Of course you know me I immediately thought of us as Christians. We are so like that. We don’t like change either. Sometimes God is trying to do a new thing but we want to hold onto the old familiar thing because it’s what we know, it’s what we are comfortable with; when God is saying “Trust me, you will like the new thing better.” We can object just as much as baby Timmy but in adult ways and yet God is undaunted as well. He just continues to introduce the new thing until we realize it truly is much better for us. lol

I pray we learn to let go of the old when God is finished with it and we embrace the new thing with as much excitement as baby Timmy did once he tasted and saw that it was good. Thank you Father for teaching me in such ordinary ways. I so need it every single day. ;)
