Childlike Trust

I am doing the group study Peacemaker. (for more on this study go to www.peacemaker.net)
The man in the video was talking about our trusting God like a child. Well this gets me thinking as it should.
Do I really trust God like a Child? Or do I want details before I but my trust in God? Do I say I trust in God and do my actions show I trust in God?

Here is what I was thinking. My children always trusted there would be food on the table. They knew we go to the store get the food. They knew we paid for the food because when they wanted all that junk I would say we don't have the money for it. Then came the short time hubby was on strike. We didn't have the money coming in but the kids still trusted there would be food on the table. They didn't question where will the money come from. I did question. You see as a child we don't need all the details we just trust our needs are provided for. As we get older we want more control so we need the details to trust. I want to go back to the childlike trust with God.

I will search scripture to build my trust without knowing details and seek God's help.

Deuteronomy 29:29
The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.
