Kids Rock!

Yesterday, my girlfriend showed me a paper her nine-year-old son did in school when he was seven. I thought I would share it with all of you. When I read it, I was transported back to a time when life was simple and innocent. I hope it does the same for you.


IF I WERE IN CHARGE OF THE WORLD
by Blake
If I were in charge I'd cancel celery and Mondays and Wednesdays.

If I were in charge of the world there'd be sleepovers every day and fudge for breakfast.

If I were in charge of the world you wouldn't have moths.

If I were in charge of the world I, Robot would be rated G.



Matthew 19:13-15 says "Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place His hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them. Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." When He had placed his hands on them, He went on from there."
This young man Blake also was sitting in on a conversation we were having about protection from the demonic. Out of the blue, he starts to quote Ephesians 6:12. He got through verse 12 and I think a little bit of 13 as well before he stumbled on the words.

But this young man is gifted with intelligence as well as blessed by God. He hears from the Lord and, as a child often does, he speaks without weighing his words. In this case, the words were from God!

Here is Ephesians 6:12-20. God bless you all.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
