Unusual Faith

My daughter, Dahson, saw a commercial on the cartoon channel today. It had a girl playing in outer space. Dahson looked at me and said, “Daddy, I want to bounce on the moon and slide on the planets! I can do that when I grow up?” I smiled, and said, “Absolutely baby.” She went on about her 4 year old business, thinking nothing of it.

It challenged me. It challenged my faith. Why can’t I have faith like that? Why can’t I believe that it is possible to do the impossible? We have been taught that though Christ anything is possible, but our eyes and situations have challenged that process. We only believe as far as we can see. We only dream as big as we perceive is possible, at least to some degree. So how do we enlarge our thinking, our dreams, our faith? I think we do it by listening to children, because they understand that with Christ everything is possible.

I want to bounce on the moon and slide on the planets too! Thanks Dahson.

    For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? -Romans 8:24

    When Greta told me she wanted to be an astronaut a couple of years ago, i told her to study math and science. Guess what happened? She did it! And now she wants to be a paleontologist.
