This scripture made me cry today. I’ve read it a million times. We hear it everyday in the context of being given much – much is required in return. BUT now I
read paid attention to the last portion. I have been ENTRUSTED with much.
I have been ENTRUSTED with two souls. It requires much from me to ensure that both are kind, loving, gentle human beings. It requires much from me to ensure that Chase loves his Heavenly Father. No different then making sure he eats what his body needs to be strong and function – I make sure he receives what his mind/soul need.
Larkin. Larkin changed me. I realized with her birth that I am responsible for this little girls soul for my entire life. Chase will make his own decisions at a certain point and already has begun to do so. Larkin’s soul is dependent on MY decisions. Sit on that one for a while.
I have been given much. I have been ENTRUSTED with much and therefore even more is required. There is a subtle yet distinct difference between given and entrusted. That hit me square in the forehead today. He trusts me. She was given to me by Him and He TRUSTED me to take care of her. He trusts that I will answer the call to given even more.
Entrusted. Trust. Heavy words. Heavy responsibility. All children are. Special ones, even more so.
Larkin’s Place. I spend a great deal of my time, my families time and Larkin & Chase’s time on this. I will give because Chase and Larkin have been entrusted to me. Much more is required.
