When I become submissive as a little child, it is the same as submitting to earthly parents but different. Because earthly parents do their best but make mistakes and are imperfect whereas God is a perfect being. So when submitting to God, I am guaranteed safety and guidance. An earthly parent may not always provide that. They may. But they may not.
Submitting to the Lord means I should not fear. There will always be love, acceptance, and help given to me from my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. They will never be disappointed beyond their love for me, and they will never fail to be supportive. I know the Lord understands and I can confide my feelings to Him and feel completely understood. Knowing He understands even if I don't get what I want helps me to submit to His will because I can know things will work out for the best because He knows. If He didn't know I was feeling distraught about it, how could He know His plan would bring me comfort, peace, or happiness? Knowing that He does know and understand my feelings perfectly gives me the assurance that He will lead me into a place where I can be happy.
If I endure it well and submit to His plan, I will find happiness. Because I know He loves me and wants me to be happy in the end.
Dun Dun DUNNN! Time for step 4. Let's DO this thang!
