I love getting surprise mail from friends. Today I received a letter from a friend who shared with me her experiences with the books from The Chronicles of Narnia since she read that we had recently watched the movie. She told me about a child who she read the book out loud to. After getting to know the character of Aslan the lion, he exclaimed that Aslan was like God. He then proceeded to tell my friend how sometimes he would just stare straight ahead not looking at anything, but feels what it was like to be with God in heaven before he was born; he was nothing yet; but he was with God. This was from a child who did not even attend church. I am always amazed at the insight of children. I have a couple of prayer cards that I go to every day that were written by my nephew when he was a child. It reminds me of his beautiful heart and how he was also very connected with God. I also find it intriguing that while they may be aware of God’s presence, they have a difficult time expressing who He is. That’s not really surprising as adults have the same problem. He is more than our human minds can understand and articulate. But, to me, it is just another example and proof that God does exist and is in relationship with us if only we allow Him to be.
I Found God today in a child’s perspective of God.
