Little do we wonder what this statement means.


It might sound like a tiny whisper whose words you are unable to grasp,or like a confused saying that is wrong and without a meaning...


*_I'm an adult,yet a child_*


This is a beautiful, interesting and yet confusing saying in the life of an individual. 


Everyone who has passed the phase of childhood sees it as by gone,but little do we know or understand that even if the child in you may not be seen... It is locked up within. 


*_I'm an adult, yet a child_*


Take a brief pause and take your mind back to the time of your childhood,how that you get so tensed,afraid and even cry when one you love rejects your friendship? 


Or the noisy and almost irritating cry that comes from you when you want to be carried and cuddled by your mother? 

 I'm sure you can. 


But do u also know that even as an adult,that same cry and yearning for a friend and partner is locked up in your heart patiently waiting for one who will understand your child-like state to come?


 *_I'm an adult, yet a child_*


It is the child within you that still gets hurt and even shed tears when being abused or looked down on. 


It is that same child whose eyes beams in excitement when given a parcel or gift that has been what you so desired. 


It is still that child that needs to be understood by you and everyone else around you. 


*_I'm an adult, yet a child_*


This same child gets guilty after doing something wrong,he runs,sheds tears and even apologizes on seeing the face of the angry mother with a cane in her hand ready to rebuke. 


Alas, what a child I am !


*_I'm an adult, yet a child_*


It is this same child that needs to receive the kingdom of God. 


Yes,you might be an adult but it doesn't deny the fact that you need to receive God and His kingdom as a child. 


I don't mean you should become a day to 12 years old, but I'm only saying that there is a mindset which you must possess and its that of a child. 


No wonder He calls us His children no matter how old we may be. 


 *_I'm an adult, yet a child_*


Let that child in you accept the free gift of Gods love towards you_salvation through Christ Jesus. 


It is still this same child that becomes a son after going through thorough training even as an heir. See(Gal 4:1-6)


Receive Jesus as a child, come to Him and feel the warmth of His ever loving embrace and He will make a rightful son and heir out of you having the right to cry out 'Abba Father'. 


Gal 4:6 _And because you are sons,God has sent the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out '' Abba Father!''_
