The Faith of a Child and Sunday School Songs

Matthew 11:25 (NIV) At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.

I recently spent some time with one of our grandchildren, not quite 2… They simply LOVE the Baby Shark song… And other simple songs… Today, I spent sometime searching YouTube to see what other videos they might like and found some of the old Sunday school songs that have lasted the ages…

Young children are so impressionable and Jesus states in Matt 11:25 that God has revealed things to children… Children have a huge faith in the adults and the world around them… they believe in anything they are told… They don’t rationalize… They don’t form committees to do a cost analysis… They don’t whip out their smart phone and Google it… They simply just believe…

I read another blog posting today on Jesus Loves Me

Sometimes life can be simple… NEEDS to be simple…

Mental health can be… CAN BE? No make that pretty much 100% chaotic if left alone! The thoughts, the words, the feelings or lack of feelings, the compulsive desires… A crisis spins faster than a hurricane…

It’s at the hard times that I need to simplify… I need to, with God’s help, control my thoughts…

Romans 12:1-2 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. 2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

A new way of thinking… Does this mean if I have recurring thoughts I don’t have enough faith? Nope! Instead look at the renewing as a way to help get you out of the crazy times… learning to recognize the hard times BUT have an escape plan…

Keep it simple! Songs like Jesus loves me… Or I’ve got the joy joy joy joy down in my heart or Rejoice in the Lord Always… Simple songs but with undeniable truth!

For me, it’s hard to sing AND have all those voices and thoughts rattling around…
