Jesus speaks to children

Matthew 21:16        Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked him. “Yes,” replied Jesus, “have you never read, ‘From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise.'”

We were giving the opportunity to have our grandson this summer for three weeks.  We had so much fun.  We were only supposed to get him for one week.  At the end of the first week he wanted to stay one more so mom said yes.  During this time we figured out he was afraid of the water,  afraid to go swimming.  He is only seven so we new something had happened but did not know what.  He didn’t know why either.  At the end of the second week which was a Saturday morning there was a part of me ready for him to go home.  I knew the next week I was going to be super busy.  I heard the Lord say “ you have had missed opportunities you need to keep him for another week”  so I called mom and she said one more week.  That day I told him that if you will ask Jesus He will show you.  He said, “what do you mean?”  Ask Jesus to show you why you are afraid to go swimming.  He said “okay.”   That was Saturday.  so we prayed about this Saturday night and Sunday night and I told him to keep asking until he hears an answer.   ….. Monday morning as we were getting ready to go to work he came up to me and said,  “Pa Pa I know why I am afraid to go swimming.”  I said , “What is it?”  Jesus showed me when I was little that my big cousin through me in the deep end of the pool and I didn’t know how to swim.”  That just broke me.  We get to the job and at this house there is a swimming pool.  We were not there 10 minutes when he asked me if he could go swimming.  I said I thought you were afraid of the water?  “Not anymore!”  he said.   and so he jumped in and went swimming for over an hour and now he has no more fear of the water. 

So I ask you ……… If you have a hurt.  All you have to do is Ask Him and he will show you just like he showed Jeremiah.  Just ask.
