The Lost Child In Me

Sometimes I wish I could just roam free into playgrounds and parks like a little child with no cares in the world. Their world is a world all their own where life brings no hardships, no tears, no pain, no worries but total happiness. Wouldn't the world be a much better place if we could just forever live as children?

As as a child we speak and act as children, so how profound is it to know that being like children is what God wants for us. Even as adults we may know enough, but still so little. For many adults the older we get, we become kids again or youthful, so it seems. So aren't we Gods "Children" anyway, no matter what age, race or sex? Like the movie Benjamin Buttons, born an old man and died as a baby. So its like we make a 360 degree circle with life from birth to old age. From a baby to a baby.

So what stops us from just being youthful in spirit, happy, carefree as we age? Is is the way of the world with jobs, friends, family, mortgages, car notes, layoffs, the recession? Or do we forget Gods way? Matthew 18:3 And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

For what we see in this world, we are forever surrounded by negativity so we become stressed, careless, unhappy, depressed, no fun to be around, etc. The only solution is to let go of our fears, trust, refocus, believe, wait for the blessings to unfold and in the meantime we must get back to our youth and learn to let go. Certain situations will make you unhappy or sad, but if we believe in a Higher Power like we say we believe, then why not become as children and remain as children. Not saying don't take things seriously as adults, but keep a youthful spirit. Love unconditionally and know that there are no boundaries. Treat everyone the same. There is only One God, One Power, One Love, One Way.
