God's imagination

Today on our way to the library, Ollie said, "Mommy, God's imagination is huge isn't it." I said "Yes it is". She then said, "He lets us see it every day, doesn't He?" To this I asked her to explain what she was talking about, for this had come out of the blue and I wasn't sure what she meant. So she said, "The world, Mommy, He let's us see it every day and it is His imagination."

Lord, thank You for revealing Yourself to her. I am so glad You let us see Your imagination every day. Sometimes I take for granted how amazing Your imagination is and how we are created in Your image... to imagine! Sometimes I have a hard time slowing down enough to just imagine.

Ephesians 3: 14-21 The Message
14-19My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you'll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ's love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
20-21God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.

This is such an amazing verse You led me to as I was thinking about our conversation. Thank You again for using my daughter to speak to me.

Tana-- I think that God used you in opening my ears to hear Him through His talking to Ollie. Oh, and this morning, The Turkey was conversating (I like this non-word!!!) with who knows who in her room before I let her come out at "get up time". When I asked her who she was talking to, she said, "Jesus". She said, "I asked Him to come to my house today." So I asked her what He said... She said, "Yes." I have truly been blessed today, and I would have missed it all had you not responded to my blog yesterday.

  1. Chills. Really, I have chills. This brings us back to what kind of fruit you're bearing, and I say it is good fruit indeed when your kids are so clearly communicating with Jesus! Watch for Jesus in your house today, Kristan, He always shows up when He says He will! Truly, all the glory and credit :) go to Him. Part of His amazing imagination gets revealed to us when we realize how He speaks to us and what lengths He goes to so we can hear Him.
