  1. Kimberly,
    This gives me goosebumps! Oh to have the simple faith of a child. During these trying times, I have seen more children playing outside. They keep a safe distance, but they are not overly consumed by it. They find joy and laughter and a freedom that somehow eludes adults. Behold the old is gone and the new has come. Praying that I would live like the baptized believer that I am and not one who is consumed by fear. I needed this reminder this am.!
    Blessings and a hedge of protection around you my friends,
    Bev xx

  2. Faith is such a beautiful thing when it’s uncluttered and fearless. I can remember conducting those “interrogation” sessions with my own kids at the point of spiritual milestones. We long for a level of orthodoxy in our sweet offspring that may not even exist in our own experience, thinking that we are saving them the trouble of back pedaling or future regret–and forgetting that most of our own spiritual growth has occurred during times of struggle!

  3. Yes the faith of a child. What we can learn from a child is so great. The questions they sometimes ask us. The faith they have in us as Adults to look after them and take care of them. Even if we stop and think just how much our Heavenly Father takes care of us. We should all have that faith of a little child. When we see their little faces looking up into ours. With that loving smile. That would melt your heart. Oh how your Heavenly Father loves for you do the same look on to him in the same way and need him the same way that little child need you. What joy that gives your Heavenly Father. Lets become like little children again. With the Faith of a Child. Running to the Father of World God and putting our trust in him and him only. As he is the one and only true Father who truly love us all. Dawn Ferguson-Little xxx

  4. I, too, chose to be baptized while still a child, though I was nine, not eight. LOVE that response from your boy in the backseat! He may not have understood everything yet (who does?!), but that precious child understood plenty. How gracious our God is to move into the homes of our hearts even if they’re not fully cleaned, polished, and furnished yet!

  5. Kimberly,

    Oh to capture the faith of a little child. They don’t let the world’s problems bother them. They trust that God will take care of them-& He will. It’s a shame that most of us lose that innocence as we age. We feel we must take care of & fret over things. Not so. Just hand all your worries to God. Matthew 11:28-30 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Let Him handle all this COVID 19 epidemic. We must let the Holy Spirit work in us. Learn to trust Jesus just as little ones do. Don’t fret or strive-pray!

    Blessings 🙂

  6. Oh yes, Learn to trust Jesus as little ones do! Amen! May many trust him through these storms we are in that normally wouldn’t even care to reach out to him and gain faith in the ONE who matters in this life! I too had goosebumps reading this Kimberly and Bev. God bless everyone! ♡
