"I am A Child"

I am the past, the present, the future and I am a child.

My mother is young, my mother is old, and I live in a world that seems to have grown cold.

I've been given too little and I've been given too much.

To be touched is good, and to be touched is bad.

I am so happy and I am so sad.

I cry too much, I don't cry at all and I am so well fed, yet of hunger I die and fall.

I know much comfort, yet in pain I moan, and I know so many, yet am so alone.

I am the future, the present and the past.

I will endure and I will not last.

I live in the most modern world, yet lack the most basic of need.

I am a child and I am confused.

I am that ahead of all known to man, and I need love and a guiding hand.

If you care about yourself, you will care about me.

So teach me of God and His perfect plan, for without this, I will never understand.

Matthew 18: 2-6

2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,3 And said,Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

 

One thing is sure.  We really feel as that same scared wide eyed child but our body reminds us of the wear. Over the years we have experienced so very much & this has formed us into who we have become.  We blame others for a whole collection joys and disasters but God explains that it is not by man's work that cause us to enter or reject heaven.  God made it personal by sending His Son Jesus Christ.   This world tell us that if we've been mistreated as a child, then we will mistreat our children.  God gave His Son to allow the most  - negative life to become a  + Positive Life. You can now take that - life and turn it into a + life. He has shown you to take all that you are and have become and take it and hang it on the cross at Calvary. You as a mistreated child can now be the best parent not because of your life but because you know what not to do.

Today is for living; so you live all that you can.  We do not get to be children but for a few minutes but we must not allow that child to die.
