WOYWW: Like a Child

I am starting a new picture 
on my Bible for Mathew 11:25.
As you can see, I traced the picture on the right
directly on to my Bible page with carbon paper.
Here I am painting the flesh parts of the little girl and mother.

 I am using a darker flesh color to shade.

 And here, I am outlining with a dark brown pencil
to give definition to the painting.

 "You have hidden these things from the wise...
and revealed them to the childlike." Matthew 11:25

My husband Luigi is very popular with children. 
When kids see him, they run to him, 
eager to play, wanting to be hugged tight. 
What is it about children that delighted God? 
Jesus said in Luke 18:6, "Let the children come to me, 
do not stop them from approaching me 
for the Kingdom belongs to such as these." 
If only we could be more like little children 
and run to Him who loves us!
Sometimes we hide from Him because we feel guilty, 
or because we disagreed with something we read in the Bible, 
or because we think we have all the time in the world. God can wait.
But children, they don't like waiting, do they? 
Perhaps that's why God wants us to be like kids. 
Children are eager. They are persistent. 
They are teachable. 
They are waiting to be amazed, they want to be amazed. 
When was the last time we were amazed at what God has done? 
When was the last time we read 
something in the Bible and our heart leapt? 
If we are more childlike, less dependent on our own thinking, 
God will reveal the treasures in His Kingdom that 
He hides from those who are wise in their own eyes! 
Lord, may I be like a child, dependent on You! 
Eager to be fed from the Master's hand!
