Do you want to have a child? Find the child of God!

Spiritualizing our thought of children and of what we are as God's offspring prepares us to be parents.

Today many couples are facing challenges about having children and may be feeling that perhaps it is too late or that there are physical limitations to this process. Some couples who have pursued having a family in every way they know how, including trying to adopt a child, have been sadly disappointed. It can be even more heartbreaking to see other people have children when they are seemingly unprepared for parenthood and perhaps even unwilling to make the commitment required. So, it is comforting to know that when a spiritual sense of family is gained, fulfillment of God's spiritual plan can emerge in consciousness and show us how the human need can be met in a perfect way.

The desire for a child can be seen as a prayer for a higher sense of family, a pure love of children realized. This desire will be met as we begin to awake to the child of God that each of us already is and to understand our place within His family. God is the only creator, and we are His children.

As our understanding of man's spiritual identity as the child of God increases, we will begin to see that this child is every-where and is reflected in everyone's true nature. Our earnest desire to have a child to nurture will be met as we grow in the precious understanding that God's child is already present, for we, and everyone, are that very child, right now.
