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

It's always neat to see the Lord and His goodness through the eyes of the children, isn't it? --Kelly

Praise the Lord that He loves us so much that He stays with us forever!!! Can you imagine that it is forever.... throughout eternity we get to praise and worship as we learn more of who He truly is!!!!!!!! And it begins now!!

I love to see my little niece learn these lessons and commit them to her heart.
