The Gift of Imagination
Incredible “imagination” story by Elma Dowds.
“That chapter reminds me how God spoke to me and used my imagination on one occasion.
I was about 30 and having a conversation with God saying I felt I missed out on my childhood as always felt fear,anxious and over responsibility.
I remember God said I’m going to give you it back, what would you have liked?
I said to sit on a swing and my dad to push me higher and higher.
He said; “ok sit on the swing and I will push you.”
In my imagination I sat on that swing and Jesus pushed me and I said “higher and higher”
I saw how he was smiling and God my father was pushing me. I was throwing my head back letting my hair blow in the wind.
From that day on i never felt i missed out on my childhood. When i first went to Justin&Nickys house at Bonnyton many years later they had a swing attached to a tree. I sat on that swing and remembered my encounter and thanked God for that amazing experience ,all in my imagination .”
