Wow! Such simple little phrases that she wrote, but amazing truths that she is grasping even at 6. As I read it when we got home, the Lord really ministered to me these 2 things.
First, that I would allow the Lord to try me - to reveal to me anything that may be hindering loyalty that belongs to Him! (know my thoughts, and walk to the end) I Chronicles 28:9 "As for you... know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts..."
Second, that God IS there - Not only will He never turn His back on me, He will never stop supporting me. "I will never leave you nor forsake you." Hebrews 13:5 The problem is already solved because we have a good, loving God who holds us in His hand. "How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand." (Psalm 139 17 &18)
I cannot describe better than the Psalmist how this makes me, as a child of God, feel. "Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it." vv. 6&7
