That's a Good Question
Earlier today Amber (4 1/2) came up to me and asked me, "Mommy, can God be two places at once?" I said, "Yes." Then she asked, "How can God be two places at once?" I said to her, "That's a hard question." She quickly added, "And a good one!" She just stood by me as I thought and thought and came up with this brilliant answer: "God can be two places at once because he's all-powerful; he can do anything." She just stared at me. Then I asked her, "That doesn't answer your question, does it?" She shook her head. I finally had to admit to her that I did not know how God could be two places at once, but that I believed he could. After Amber left the room, I mulled that concept over in my mind. I can't (and won't ever be able to) understand or explain some of the things of God. But I still believe them to be true. I pray that one day Amber will be able to say that. Meanwhile, does anyone else want to answer Amber's question?
