BEING A CHILD AGAIN
Have you ever thought about what life was really like when you were just a child? I think most all of us have at different times. I know that each of us lived our own childhood and no two are ever exactly alike.But for me I can remember how I just had faith that everything I needed was going to be given to me. And I dont want to confuse the things I needed with the things I wanted because I sure didnt get everything I wanted just the things I needed.I had faith that I would always have a place to stay, clothes to wear and food to eat.Of course I never fully realized just how hard my mother and step dad had to work to do that.We never had a lot of the "extras" in life but always did have the necessities.As an adult I am now even more amazed at my own parents and those who raised their kids in this manner.There is a bible verse in Matthew 18:3 which states Then Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, you must first change and become like little children. Otherwise, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Now I realize that each of us will take our own interpation of that verse as to what it means and I can only tell you what it means to me personally. And that is this--for me to truly live a life that is fulfilling and joyous I must first become as that little child again so I can establish that faith that is necessary for me to accept the gifts that Life offers to me.Just by knowing that Life will supply me everything I ever need I can then rest easy at night knowing all my needs are already fulfilled. And again Im trying not to confuse the things I need with those things I desire.I will end with the following quote from the Science of Mind--To each is given what he(she) needs and the gifts of heaven come alike to all. How we shall use these gifts is all that matters. My fondness hope is that each of you will find your life filled with much love joy peace and understanding. And please as you travel along this path you have chosen try and do something nice for someone today just because you can!
