What quality?

Genesis 25, 26 and Matthew 18: 1-20

This morning I that keeps going through my mind is write about prayer.  It was as if the Spirit kept saying tell them to talk to me and then I read the passage from Matthew 18 and what grasp my attention was the story of the lost sheep.

Do you remember when you were little and questions just constantly flowed out of your mind to your parents, to your teacher, to anyone that would listen?  How?  Why? When? I mean it was constant.  You were learning and you were growing and you wanted more and more.

What happened?  Do you want more?  When you read the Word does it come alive with I want to know more about that story?  The Word tells us we must become like little children to enter the Kingdom of God.  Well, what quality have you lost from your childhood?  Are you still curious?  Are you still filled with questions?  Do you wander off looking around?  Do you watch your friends that seem to not worry about time schedules and wish it was you?  

The Lord will find you wherever you wander off to and I love the words found in Matthew 18:13 ~
And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about the one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.  In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that nay of these little ones should be lost.

What do you need to recapture?  Is it awe and wonder?  Is it wow, did you see that?  Is it the time spot to wander off?  Well, carve out a moment  and let your mind flow...Talk to God about what's on your mind and allow the questions and the discussion to flow and wait with awe and wonder about what He will give you in return for pursuing this special time with Him!

Today, become like a little one and be curious!

Sweet blessings,
