Being Careless!

This is my nugget of the month. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5

The word ‘trust’ has an interesting meaning. When I first saw this meaning, I reacted to it. It means ‘careless’. When you hear the word ‘careless’, you normally think about irresponsible behavior such as a ‘careless’ driver. But it also has a positive meaning. It means ‘care-less’.

When my kids were little, I would tell them that we were going on vacation. They would get giddy with excitement. Never once did they say, ‘how we going to pay for this?’; ‘where we going to stay?’; ‘is our car road worthy?’; ‘where we going to eat?’; etc. etc. etc.

You see…my kids were ‘careless’. They didn’t think about any of that because they knew that their daddy was the daddy of the details. Oh I was planning all of that. I was busy as a little bee working our all the plans. But not my kids! They were careless!!!

So…trust in the Lord! Be careless!!! Because my heavenly Father is the ‘daddy of the details’!!! Cast all those cares on Him for He cares for you!!!
