Just had a fun exchange with my daughter after wrestling one on one for strength. A great daddy-daughter moment.
Lily: Are you strong or what?
Me: Yep, I am strong.
Lily: But your not as strong as God! Daddy, how strong is God?
Me: He’s the strongest! He is so strong he made everything. You know how the earth spins…well, it is like he is spinning it on his finger… that is how strong and how big God is.
Lily: God’s playing basketball with the earth?
Me: No, not exactly, but um kinda.
Me: God is so strong he used his words to create everything. Remember your verse for the week?
Lily: “The universe was made at His command. -Hebrews 11:3″
Me: That’s great Lily. Can you imagine being so strong you pointed and said “Hippo” and it appeared right there?
Lily: Or FLAMINGO!
Me: Yep, that would be something! TURKEY!
Lily: I wish I was God.
Me: Um, well, being God also comes with a lot of responsibility sweetheart, so we don’t…
Lily: (interrupting) Well, I wish I never made wrong choices, that would be so good (thinking hard).
Me: Yes it would sweetie, yes it would. (smiling)
