Precious Child was always asking Abba questions. Not annoying one-word questions of “Why?”, but questions to soothe her curiosity. Precious child loves learning and Abba loves encouraging Precious Child to learn. Precious Child knows that, as well as trying to find out the answers for herself, she can ask Him anything. Precious Child never feels stupid with Abba because He will always answer with delight in His eyes as He knows her inside out. Abba always answers Precious Child with the honesty and respect she deserves – because He really is the best daddy ever! – My Journal Entry in February 2017
I ask a lot of questions. Some people even call me ‘curious George’. Most of the time I feel as if I’m highly annoying for asking such a lot of awkward questions. My desire is to understand, but oftentimes I seem to come across as difficult and people don’t like, or appreciate, my questioning. I don’t see myself as asking to annoy or upset – but I just have a quest for learning and knowing truth.
I also have an unusually high desire to be honest and for other people to be honest with me. I’m very bad at lying – even when I do manage it I feel terrible and very quickly confess.
For a long time I worried that Abba would get fed up with me asking questions too. But, fortunately, that has not been my experience. The reality has been that He has shown Himself most clearly and I’ve felt Him most closely when I’ve questioned and been honest with Him. This has been a huge surprise to me. He seems to honour and appreciate honesty and integrity. Even when I’ve wrestled with Him over things He’s brought me in line with Him as gently and lovingly as He can – even if I can’t see it at the time. After all, I know this, ‘And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.‘ (Romans 8:28 NKJV)
