Revelations of a Seven-Year-Old

I have A LOT to say lately, but not enough time to say it! So I’ll leave you with some short thoughts.

I’m always amazed at how excited my daughters are to discover some truth that I have known for years! I was driving my seven-year-old daughter home from swimming lessons, and we stopped at Burger King. Out of the blue, she held up an onion ring, exclaiming, “MOM! I know why these are called ‘onion rings’! Because they are onions, and they are in the shape of a ring!” Brilliant!

Though it was funny, I got a warm fuzzy feeling of how much I loved her. Then, it hit me. God feels the same way about his children, when we discover truths about Him. Even thought He has always known, (because, well… he’s God) he still gets a warm fuzzy feeling of love for us when we express what we’ve learned.

I still remember the first time the following scripture sank into my mind, and I understood! It was amazing! But now that I’ve been a Christian for 14 years, it seems a little elementary… or does it? If I think on it long enough, it still blows my mind.

This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives. 1 John 1:5-10

    What a great perspective you put on that! I love it.

    The funny thing is my six year old daughter just said almost the same thing last week. I thought it was funny and cute but that was about it. Your post was like that slap on the forehead on those V-8 commercials. Guess I needed that LOL! 🙂

    I’m still having my “light bulb” moments after a lifetime of loving God. I think he is well pleased with such a heart and a thirst that bends toward sacred discovery. Let the search continue!



  4. Thanks for the nuggets of truth, on the fly. Reading about your “warm fuzzies” reminded me of all the times we flashed on the Father heart of God through our own parental experiences.
    You wrote this:”Then, it hit me. God feels the same way about his children, when we discover truths about Him.”
    And it is so true. He gives us the kids, while we, the parents, are HIS kids. And our flashes of intense feeling toward the little ones give us a glimpse of how HE feels about us.
    Great Work, MamaBlogger!


  5. Thanks for the encouragement, everyone!


  6. I needed to hear that passage today, Sarah. Thanks.
