Like a Child Submits to His Father


One day I was walking with my children home from school and they spotted their dad coming toward us. They ran to him, threw their arms out and couldn’t wait to hug him. It’s DAD! We LOVE him!! He could tell them to jump off the roof and he’d catch them and they’d do it in a heartbeat because they trust him so completely. He tells them things and they believe him. But he’s earned that trust by loving and taking care of them consistently every day of their lives. He’s dependable. He helps them grow. They know he’s there for them. It made me think about my relationship with God. What would my life be like if I trusted Him as completely as my children trust their father? ••• This painting, “Like A Child Submits to His Father” is part of an auction to help give scholarships to LDS artists, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it!
