Humbled by a Child

I've been recounting all the things happen to me this past 11 months and 30 days. My victories and defeats, my adventures and misadventures, my travels and stays and all lessons that are learned and applied. But just recently I experience one big thing from a small child that I could say the very thing I was looking for an answer myself.
I would like you to meet Gabby, the very cute little daughter of my two amazing friends Ate Monica and Kuya Dennis. She is their eldest daughter and somehow we had a similarity (although technically I'm not the eldest).Last Wednesday in Teatrino at Greenhills Promenade she helped her mom volunteer in our last Wednesday service in church. Amazingly she handled her position very well. I have seen many people almost getting sweaty getting nervous on what she done and more surprisingly I was one of those people who is pretty nervous on it but she did it with calm and joy. I watch her all over the service how she handle the kids (yeah we had a little kids church upstairs that time there so makulit and cute hehe) and her "job" so called in volunteering in tech. I saw such joy and calmness in her eyes. She is so eager listening at Pastor Jayson and the rest of the gang while once in a while telling her friends to be still and quiet and do the same thing. I watch her closely as she frequently repeat her actions until God reveal to me that I've been missing the past months with my question to Him.

But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Luke 18:16

I often read this but it was that night that I got what was God has been telling me all along. You don't need to act like a child or be a child literally to obey Him. You only need to listen and have a faith like a children and attitude same as a child, patience, pride-less, eager to listen, observant, joyful and calm. As a young adult I honestly forgot to be like this, be like a child, I'm always "yeah I already know it" or "yeah I know I have to do it" but honestly I don't. Honestly Im not, I was trying to become an adult but I'm more turning to a obscure brat. That night I was so humbled by Gabby and was so repenting to God for acting immature all along. Now 2011 is coming, there are lots of lessons I need to learn more and I hope God will continue to show me that apart from Him and without His help I'm still my past.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5
