When I was a little girl I used to go outside to try to find fairies in the grass. It was a legitimate search, fueled by my belief that fairies existed, and according to my research (yes children have methods of research) fairies were really small. Additionally I had already decided that all things wonderful were outside. Therefore those exquisite, tiny, magical creatures must be holding parties in the grass right outside our house.
I’ve always had a logical mind.
I never looked for fairies indoors.
I Corinthians 13:11 – “When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.”
God placed in my heart, body and mind the ability to believe from the time I was a young child. As I grew into adulthood, He has refined belief and faith so that I could put away childish things and search for the essentials. I had the seed when I was little as I combed through the grass for something I had never seen but hoped to find.
As God matured me over the years it was critical that while I put childish ways behind me, I never lose that seed of faith that searched for things I could not see. The childlike faith that Jesus said was so necessary to enter the kingdom of heaven, needed to keep the original design.
We get to believe whatever we choose.
What we believe in our hearts is the “it” that carries us through our days.
Believe it and you will live it.
So what’s your “it”?
Here is mine:
JOHN 3:16 – “ For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
I BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST
MATTHEW 5:18 – “I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished”
2 TIMOTHY 3:16 & 17 – “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
I BELIEVE IN GOD’S WORD
I don’t search for fairies in the grass anymore.
But I do listen for angel wings sometimes.
