I am not smarter than a 5th grader

I know because I live with one. Yesterday our 5th grader came home with spelling and a blank math test because he tanked the first go around. Fractions. Fractions and multiplication came easy to me. He (our 5th grader) actually GETS fractions, but the problem occurs somewhere between ‘showing his work’ and trying to pull out the actual, correct answer from the jumbled mass of numbers. Jesus does that with me. I am just this huge jumbled mass of questions, thoughts, fear, frustration, and worry until I seek His guidance and He shows me the actual, correct way. And then I’m good. Usually only for a time. But I’ll take it.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.”…John 14:6 (NIV)
