Kids have dreams too.........
The little girl in the top right corner is my mom (Alice). She was the last of 14 children her family. Her mother died when she was 5 years old. My mom would marry my dad and have one son (Ronnie left bottom corner) and one girl (Janet right bottom corner). The picture with 1956 is me as well. Little kids with big dreams.
Numbers 12:6 New International Version (NIV)
he said, “Listen to my words:
When there is a prophet among you,
I, the Lord, reveal myself to them in visions,
I speak to them in dreams.
THANK YOU GOD ~
God you do speak to us in dreams and visions
As a kid, I always wanted to grow up and teach kindness. I didn't grow up learning Bible stories or much about Jesus. I was taken to church by a neighbor Connie and it was there I heard about Jesus. It planted a seed that day and it would be years before I heard more. Kids listen far more than you might realize and it brings the hope of a greater ahead.
Matthew 19:14 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
I see how the little girl inside my mom wanted Jesus too. She searched for love and friendships in life. She became angry after my dad died in 1973. She wanted to die and cried out at night to do that. I remember how it affected my brother and I. It was as if we lost both parents on that day. At least one mentally left us too. The little kids inside of my brother and I, just wanted our mom to come back. It's a crazy story, but there is always little kids inside of us. It's the little kid that stir up faith or reach out with tears. God, please help those who hurt.
I love that Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me". We are born babies, but grow throughout time. That growth needs Jesus to continue to teach, lead and guide us. We can open the Bible to find stories of hope and knowing Jesus is still with us.
Hebrews 13:8-10 New International Version (NIV)Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
The little kid inside of us can rest in knowing God gave us Jesus for purpose. If you are waiting on a miracle of health, trust the process. Jesus is the same as he was a long time ago. Sometimes that little kid inside of me, just wants a hug. A hug from someone who cares and shows me. Time is priceless and I love time with family plus friends too. Life is so short and we never know what a new day will bring. Just knowing the kid inside of me has Jesus seems to be enough. Along with my family and friends which make a connection with me. Nothing is greater than the love of God and his son. Then our family and friends that come along side of us. We are truly not alone, unless we choose to be.
Little kids have needs and wants. Maybe you didn't hear about Jesus as a kid, but you can now. Make sure you find a bible based church, people who live the word and come along side of you. Pray for real friends and pray for a growing experience in God too. The little girl inside of me stays alive and well. I can look back and see the growth of my life, my example to others and God's love. I continue to grow and learn daily. I do my best daily to serve the Lord, help others and take care of myself. God is love and that love is big enough to keep your heart at peace. Purpose this a good day.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
