God — my ‘director’

We were playing in the playground at school, and I was the director of our play. There were some logs on the playground. I was using those logs as part of our set. Everyone came to the logs to play with me. Our play was called “The Little Cats.” It was about some cats who had lost their youngest kitten and were trying to find him. 

But the play wasn’t working out. The other children weren’t going where they were supposed to go. One “cat” was supposed to be on the right side, and the other on the left. It was all falling apart because the “cats” were going into the middle where they shouldn’t have been!

I was sure that God would have an answer. So I was still and prayed to God. I knew that God made us all in His image and likeness and governs us all like a “director.” I prayed that God was  actually the director of the play and not me. He directed me. I felt at peace and saw that I didn’t need to worry. I realized I could look away from the “error” of no one cooperating. And I could see my friends as God’s children, too.
