Do you believe in God? Do you believe everyone deserve Abundance? Are you a very positive mama? Do you read a lot of books about Personal Growth? If the answer is Yes so this article may give you a few ideas to provide your child with Faith and Hope.
The older I get, the better I understand what faith really is, the true one that is capable of moving mountains. I have always been a Christian, but I must admit that recent events of my life (such as the loss of several childhood friends in the same year or my encounter with the Navajos people in Arizona) have strengthened my faith. My faith also underwent a slow and deep transformation.
Last night I was praying God to grant health to my youngest son and a vision for the future to my teenage boy when the idea for this article came crashing into my mind.
It was by talking to God that I understood 5 concepts, ideas, call them as you want, which can enable children to understand the Christian faith.
God created us and we were created in the image of God. Even though we limited ourselves by leaving the Garden of Eden, it was our lack of faith and trust that made us weaker than God. But basically YES we are created in the image of God and therefore we have his pure vision for things, people, events, wills… It’s our rule to develop this power. Use it or lose it!
Since we are of the same essence as Jesus, Son of God, it is very normal that we are children of God. God is therefore a father, not a biological father, but a spiritual father, who does not abandon his little ones and who always answers our questions and our requests. Like a good dad he is available 7 days a week and 24 hours a day. Our mistake is to be afraid to disturb him, to talk to him at night, or to believe that his love is not big and strong enough to help us at any time of the day or of the night. If we trust our heavenly father, things become easier. God answers. He does not use his face or his voice to do it but he hears us well and places everything we need in our path. This is how he answers our questions.
Our personal abundance is unlimited since we are children of God and our father takes care of us. Yet we have to do some parts of the work. We cannot remain lazy! God help but we have to start the work alone sometimes!
It is when we believe that God has stopped hearing us that we lose our greatest power: faith in this father who gives us not what we want but what we need.
It is by opening our conscience, by constantly seeking to understand earthly things as well as spiritual things that our mind becomes a way and a place of expression for God himself.
Even though I went through moments of great pain and despair a year ago, now and since my time in Oljato, Arizona, I know and feel my power is limitless. If I open my conscience and if I am ready to invest myself in my projects (like that of leaving to finish my mourning in the USA) then God answers. God sent me everything I needed on the spot: a free psychologist (a participant in my trip), very supportive travel friends, and stories heard on the road that really helped me.
Don’t force your children to believe if they don’t want to. But remind them of our celestial origins and our ability to open our consciousness through simple concentration work. Practising acts of kindness helps us expand our awareness and connect with God.
