When I was a child, I had real beliefs after things didn’t look like they were working out like they should. I would talk to God , and my imaginary friend ( Imaginary friends are friends that are perfect, they think , act, and say just what you want them to). We went to church all the time and studied about God, so I know the difference, and shared God with my imaginary friend ( Her name was Connie by the way ) so connie was a good Christian too. When we were created , God could have made us anyway He wanted too. He didn’t have to make us as little children He could have made us grown with the thoughts in our brain as He chose. God wanted us innocent , free will , and to teach us His will for our lives. He wanted us to grow close to Him and to love Him with all our hearts, and to love our fellow man the way He loves them. ” God is love ” Ephesian 5: 1 Says : ” Therefore be imitators of God ” Copy Him and follow His example as well behaved children. Also Luke 18:17 says ; ” Truly , I say to you whoever will not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will in no wise enter it.”
Children’s minds are like little sponges they soak up knowledge with what they see and hear weather good or bad . As a child, I would tell my grandmother everything I heard my parents say or what I saw , much to the dismay of my parents.
As a child , I walked and talked with God out in the woods , for we lived way in the county , with no close neighbors. It was my alone time with God and I had a lot of faith back then. But growing up , I got distracted with the worlds life , and even left Connie .
I would still talk to God , but not share , mostly told Him what I wanted , and not how much He meant to me and how I love Him so. I still went to church , but sat on the pew like a lump on a pickle. Soon as church was over , go home till next week.
Now that I am older, and have lived more time than I have left, I want to get back to the love and faith I had as a child. I love God so much ! I trust Him am so blessed to have a wonderful Christian husband and children to love !
