Jesus Loves Me

Can we be honest today?

Isn’t it true sometimes life just doesn’t work out the way you thought life was going to work out?

Isn’t it true sometimes God doesn’t show up for you in the way you thought God was going to show up?

In light of the realities of living in a broken world I thought you might need to be reminded of this simple truth today my two-year-old Brewer shared with us last night…

    Too cute for words. Amazing how God will speak to us through the tiniest, most innocent of voices. And a sweet reminder of “those days.” Thanks, Pete!

    I’m adding Brewer to my list of great theologians.

    Isn’t it funny how the simple truths of God’s Word are the most powerful.

    Precious! Just precious. I am learning that God’s ways are always better than mine, even though there I times I can’t fathom it. Waiting always shows me. And, He is always there … I just have to ask Him to show me His presence when I can’t “feel” it. God is good.

    You might have a little rockstar for Jesus on your hands! :)

    @michelle, you should see him on electric.

    Your first few questions could not have been more on the mark for me this morning. Thank you — even though I don’t like feeling those ways, seeing the questions, made me feel less alone in the thoughts. Then, Brewer’s song. Thank you for sharing it. Thanks Brewer, for reminding me of a truth I sometimes forget too easily.

    I think he has the gift of speaking in tongues!

  14. Pete Wilson says:

    @David Knapp, I checked it and it seems to be working. Let me know if you still have problems!

    what a sweetie

  16. Nikki Jo says:

    Thank you for sharing this – so precious! “we is weak, but Jesus strong” (I’m sure he probably was saying the words correctly, but this is what I heard in my untrained ear, which I thought was pretty fitting).

    Even more so? In my reader, just above this post was another: http://www.beautifulcanvas.org/blog/2009/03/kicking-and-screaming/. They kind of went together and really shared something to me today that I needed to hear.

    Thanks :)

  17. Harold says:

    Brew, ya started out and I’m thinking why would he pick this song but you know what, you worked it out dawg. I was really feeling it and I could tell you were feeling it too. Next time though, I would dump your stylist and your voice coach and just let Brew be Brew.

  18. Pete Wilson says:

    @Nikki Jo, Love that! Thanks for sharing that post.

  19. Sarah says:

    Yes and yes. When I was in college one of the priests use to say, “God always answers prayers, and sometimes the answer is ‘No’” Wise words but it’s hard to take.

    Brewer’s got awesome guitar skills.

    You go big boy! With guitar and all – I am in envy over the budding talent!

    What a great reminder. And yes – my kids are often the avenue through which I am taught so many lessons – simle to complex. God is great!!

    I needed to hear that soooo much today – and through Brewer, too. Child-like faith, untainted, untampered, truth.

    Thank you for sharing your family with us :)

    *melting* Hug that one a little extra for me tonight, k?

    God’s been saying ‘no’ to me a lot lately… I’m just trying to remember sometimes that’s what parents have to do out of love. I didn’t always understand it as a kid and I don’t understand it now, but it doesn’t mean it’s not the right answer.

  31. karen says:

    OK. THAT was adorable! And oh so timely. I was just complaining about my life when I saw you tweet that led me here. Would you kindly get out of my head?

  32. ckroboth says:

    Too Cute… So who has the better voice you or him? I think we need a video comparison of you singing the same song.

    So Cute! Coming home from church this past Sunday I was having my daughter Ellie ( 3 years) repeat the verse on the little paper they sent home with me…the verse is I Peter 5:7…so she says “He cares for you…the end…” obviously she added the “the end” but I thought it goes nicely with the verse!! He cares for you! End of story!

  41. Gloria Wise says:

    Phooey, the video didn’t work on this end.

  42. Nate VZ says:
