Just wanted to share this
This poem was written by a young boy who was born with a rare form of muscular dystrophy and died just days before his 14th birthday. I think this is what is meant by have a childlike mind. And coming to God as children. The thoughts that erupt from the smallest minds are often the most phenomenal.
A NEW HOPE
by Mattie Stepanek
I need a hope.a new hope.
A hope that reaches for the stars, and
That does not end in violence or war.
A hope that make peace on our earth, and
That does not create evil in the world.
A hope that finds cures for all diseases, and
That does not make people hurt,
In their bodies, in their hearts
Or most of all, in their spirits.
I need a hope.a new hope,
A hope that inspires me to live, and
To make all these things happen,
So that the whole world can have
A new hope, too.
