I have been asked about Spiritual childhood....it is a beautiful gift of grace to trust in God as a little child, and there are many words in scripture that reveal to us that we are so unto God.
To be as a child before God is totally contrary to the spirit of this world which would try and educate us in power seeking, exploitation, and self seeking.....
A child seeks to love in simplicity of heart, it looks to those entrusted with its parenthood for all its needs..... this is how God would have us to.... why otherwise would he reveal himself as Father and also give us in his great wisdom and love a heavenly MOTHER ?
We all know times of suffering, pain and disappointment, the pain can be so deep that words fail us totally, at such times place yourself on the heart of your heavenly Mother, climb into the arms of the Father... and simply pour out your tears, for God and Mary love you , understand you as no other ever can or will.
Never fear your littleness and vulnerability it will draw Gods compassion down upon you.
