A Little Child

Dear Jesus,

Life is full of small and big changes. Changes that often threaten my comfort zone and what I have come to know and understand.

Lord when you were here you taught people many new things, things that challenged what they believed and what they stood for.

They were surprised that God would allow the things that you preached and taught.

Some even turned their backs on you thinking you were a worker of evil.

But Lord you also said that in order for us to recieve the teachings that you taught we would have to become like little children. Unlearned, excited and ready to be moulded and taught.

Blessed are those who recieved your teachings. I want to be like a little child Lord.

In your Name,

Amen

 

Your word Inspires many

Dear Jesus,

I see everyday how the world is becoming more and more evil just by the way the children in this world behave.

Is this what will be? Children growing up to be heartless, impulsive, selfish and uncaring.

It makes me so sad and scared for what will come.

But Lord at the same time I am greatful that you have provided us with guidelines and instructions on how to live our lives.

And these you have shared with us so we can share them and teach them to our own children.

After all I don’t feel so hopeless because your word insires many for now and always.

In your Name,

Amen

 

Like Arrows´╗┐

Dear Jesus,

In the bible you have described children as arrows.

I wonder why you said that? And a man who has them is described as a warrior.

Wow!

What an illustration Lord. What does that mean? 

You have shown many of us that children are indeed a blessing and challenge every part of us to extend and bend far beyond what we thought possible.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

Moving Beyond Myself

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for giving me this desire to nurture and care for children.

You cared for children very much and disliked it when others turned them away from you.

I am still learning so much about my children, other children and their needs.

It takes a lot of moving beyond myself to meet their needs.

What one, small thing can I do day in and day out to meet their needs?

In your Name,

Amen

Especially my Son

Dear Jesus,

Its on my mind right now to talk about the future with you.

You regard our men highly, especially sons.

I can’t help but feel an urgency on my future and all the people involved including the people in my present.

Especially my son.

Lord, what do you want us to teach our sons?

How can I influence my son for good?

This is so important, because its not about what I want.

My impact is so wrapped up into everything that I do.

Help us understand.

In your Name,

Amen
