  1. Powerful. Beautiful. Truth. I read from Job this morning in my Bible in 90 Days challenge … and was reminded of this great God who has given us every thing … and what He wants in return is all … all my heart, all my mind, all my soul, all my strength. I wonder sometimes why it is that I hold back from Him … I do know that He is trustworthy, loving, faithful and yet I hold on to my Barbies & butterflies as if somehow I can do more with them than He. Only in giving Him everything ~ the good, the bad, the precious, the ugly, all of it ~ can I find the peace that everything else never seems to bring. Thank you, Sarah, for once again presenting truth.

  2. simply beautiful. this spoke to me today. may this be my desire everyday to give Him my all. thank you Sarah.

  3. Out of the mouths of babes. In their innocence they speak the truth and so often show us, the very ones that should be teaching them, how we should be living or what we should be doing. Thank you for the reminder that God does want our all, the best of everything. Why should we hold back, God gave us His best: JESUS
    Your words went straight to my heart and brought tears of shame because I don’t give my best to Him

  4. WOW! This was a powerful post for me and something I needed to see and thnk about. I want to give HIM my best too! Thanks so much! XO, Pinky

  5. Thank you! This really touched me! So often I don’t see anything wrong with offering Him “leftovers” – as to my time for instance. You helped me remember that it’s about a love-relationship where I give Him my best. He deserves nothing less! Amazing how often God speaks through children… I wanna be like this child agan – truly loving and extravagantly generous!

  6. As a grandmother who has given untold numbers of Barbies as gifts, this touched my heart to the core. Thank you so much!
