(3rd) Day of Summer

Tired, but still going.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” – Philippians 4:13

Today I did not get to sit down and rest until I came back from Big Apple Games at like 8:30. So for a full 12 hours, I was doing work of some sort. Strangely enough, at the end of the night, I still have enough energy to carry on. Even though there really was nothing much that I could do, I still felt alive enough to not just bum around. Today I was reminded again of the potential in the children’s innocence. Sure, there were questions they asked that really made me smile, but I couldn’t help but to think, “Soon, they’ll all turn away first before figuring it out for themselves”. Can a child really come to accept Christ? There are many things a child has still yet to learn, but I don’t think love is one of them. I don’t think they’ve fully understood what was taught today, but that prayer was a seed planted by God. Without even knowing it, their lives have just changed. Without knowing it, God is going to blow their little minds.

So God, I pray that you will use these next 6 weeks to change my mind and to soften my heart. The patience I was given was a miracle. I’ve really wanted to choked their skinny little throats, but looking at their tender hearts I just could not do so. God, even if they hate me with their guts, I pray that I will be able to hold a godly influence over them.

One thought on “(3rd) Day of Summer

  1. I find it very interesting that you question if a child can know/learn love. I mean, I see what you’re saying that we humans, as we grow older, we always seek for that unconditional love that only God can give and we learn of its absence in our every day lives. But then I remembered hearing a clip of a sermon which spoke of how God wants us to have innocent, child-like hearts. Like, its a weird double entendre; God wants us mature and experience the entropy of life as we manage to keep a pure heart. So, maybe I guess we should try to learn from them (:

    And, I also believe that God loves children and speaks highly of them in the Bible. 13Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them as noted in Matthew 19: 13-14:
    13Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them. 14Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

    So, I guess maybe it is our duty to pray for them and help them learn of the stories of the God.
