This year, roll back time and become a child again. Remember what it was like to be a little girl? To believe Daddy was the strongest man in the world, that he could fix anything and everything? You were trusting, playful, and resilient. Wide-eyed and wonder-filled. As you matured, you may have lost your ability to play, create, and, saddest of all, to receive love and affection with the abandon of a little one. And like so many grown-ups, you may be in "performance mode," working hard for the approval of God and others. Growing up doesn't mean you have to lose the wondrous aspects of childhood. In fact, Scripture holds up the child as a spiritual model for believers of all ages. Long Live the Child is a devotional journey designed to connect you with your childlike heart. Christine Wyrtzen invites you to discover the treasures in your spiritual birthright as God's child. It took her years to really grasp the meaning of her own adoption in Christ, but once she understood how fully she was loved, her life changed. Writing as a friend and wounded healer, Christine tells how you can learn to live as a much-loved daughter, too. Touching heart, soul, and mind, these devotions unfold the secrets of God's father heart. As you embrace his Word, you will experience the wonder of walking in faith as a daughter of promise.
