My 6 year old granddaughter received an Easter balloon and instead of keeping it she decided to let it go and send it to Jesus in heaven as a thank you for Him dying for us. She then told me that she forgot to put her name on it but then said I know He was watching and knew it was from me. I told her Jesus was smiling when He got it. She asked how do you know ...[text shortened]... e little children and their simple pure expressions of their faith. What a lesson for all of us.
Once I was sharing the gospel with a group of highschool students. They sat around me on the grass as I explained as best I could the gospel of Christ.
On another day (it might have been the next day) a young girl whom I didn't recognize told me that she had met God. I asked her how. To my surprise she told me that she was one of the people sitting and listening to me the time before.
She said that she prayed to God that she was not too smart and that He was going to have to show her what I was talking about. That night she said she had a very real dream in which many people including herself were in the sea because of a sinking ship. All were drowning. But a large hand came down from the sky and scooped her up in rescue.
God was faithful to this young mind and communicated with her in a way that she could understand His love and salvation. And I was very happy that it did not depend upon my explanations completely for this young girl's faith.
