Our whole life is like a land slide. Because god send tests (the land slide) but he plants trees with strong branches and roots (the word) so we can stay safe from the land slide (or from Satan’s control) but when we get doubt, fear, or hate, then a branch breaks off the tree (or we lose the word of God) and the Broken branch will look like a strong one (the devil will trick u In to thinking that he’s the light) then the more bad branches we grab the more the land slide takes us in (or the more the devil controls u) so DON’T BE AFRAID, DOUBTFUL, OR HATEFUL!!! LOVE AND LEARN AND BELIEVE HIS WORD AND IN HIM!!! Btw this came because I just went to the park and played land slide and my brothers were getting too annoying so that’s where all this came from.
These words were written by my 12 year old daughter on 3/9/13 – I post these not to boast of my parenting because my parenting is only a small portion of the amazing young woman she is. These words were inspired by the Holy Spirit; He is VERY much ALIVE and living inside of her. She was baptized on her 10th birthday and each year I am continually blown away what comes out of her mouth when she allows Him to lead.
I have heard repeatedly over the last year that children cannot understand the commitment they’re making when they choose Jesus at a young age. This makes me want to say to these people “RIGHT…because any adult that makes the commitment to Jesus understands perfectly when they are first baptized.”
Listen…Jesus tells us NOT to hinder the children from coming to Him. That we have to become LIKE them to enter the Kingdom. That our Faith needs to be like THEIRS. I am not aware of any time in the Scriptures where He is instructing the children to be more like us.
Another reason some people “hinder” the children from Jesus is because they unable to understand real sin. Again…that is the dumbest thing I’ve heard. Let’s keep them from being baptized into Jesus until they really get some life experiences and know what sin is. Let’s NOT raise them in the Lord, baptizing them when they’re asking, sealing them with the Holy Spirit. No definitely lets wait until Satan get his hands on them first. Let them wrestle with that demon and then decide if they want to make Jesus Lord of their life. (I’m sitting here shaking my and rolling my eyes.)
Parents….let me just say this. If you’re not teaching your children about Jesus, not displaying moments of Holy Spirit miracles, and leaving it up to the church one day a week….I’m afraid to say that YOU are robbing your children of their inheritance. Our children and theirs are the ones who will enjoy the WINE of the Holy Spirit. We have been given the Water that turns into WINE if we would only activate it and allow His presence to LEAD us in every area of our lives.
If we are unable to guide them in accepting the Holy Spirit of God then we have been missing the mark of discipling our children. Perhaps…the reason may be because you are unaware of the commitment that YOU made when being baptized in the Name of Jesus, and you haven’t activated Him either. If this is the case let me tell you that He’s having you read this for a REASON… He’s right there…talk to HIM. Invite Him to be present in your life. You will not be sorry.
But I’m hoping there are other parents who read this and are encouraged to continue to live out their Faith WITH their children. God loves a parent who knows the importance of making sure their children KNOW HIM in ALL areas of their lives. May God Bless you more than you could truly ever imagine!!
