Is God for Real?

Lance my 7 year old son, is a deep thinker. He is a very matter-a-fact kind of person, he tells it like it is. Lately he has been questioning me about God. He is having a hard time with the fact that God has always been here. He is wondering how that can be. I totally understand where he is coming from because I remember thinking the same thing as a child.


I noticed he skipped communion this past Sunday as well, when I asked him about it he said that he does believe in God but he doesn't believe he made the earth.

It does hurt my 'mommy' heart but as my husband and I were talking about this, we both agreed that it's a good thing because it shows that he can think for himself. I know it's going to be a challenge raising this little thinker, but you know what, it keeps me on my toes. It makes me need to dig deeper in God's Word because this little boy is going to have lots of questions as he grows and wants to know more about God.

When Lance, was 5 years old he accepted Christ as his Lord and Saviour. He wasn't forced. It was his own decision, in fact I questioned him on it to make sure he understood what he was doing. I do remember wondering if he was ready but at the same time I didn't want to discourage him.  All my other children accepted Christ between the ages of 5-7, so I didn't think it was odd when Lance came to me about it. There was some feeling that I had, I couldn't quite put my finger on it though. I thought maybe it was just because Lance was my youngest and a bit more immature at this age then my other children at age five. With the other children I didn't have that feeling I had with Lance, this is why at the time two years ago I thought it strange but dismissed it. I still don't know what that feeling was but maybe I should have taken it to the Lord and asked.
