Reena rejoices in her daily dependence on God which has now become her habit. 

She communicates with God, as a child talks with loving parents, and enjoys their company. 

Her vibrant relationship with God results in emotional connectedness, both with God and people who walk with the Lord. 

Reena understands why Jesus said, “Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all” (Mark 10:15). 

To approach God as a child, we need to be stripped of our sins and doubts, and enter His presence with confidence that comes from total faith. 

Is God going to be there when I need Him? A child would emphatically say “Yes!”

Children by nature are relationally oriented. When they are in trouble or pain, the first thing they do is reach out for a protective, comforting parent. 

They instinctively seek out relationship without even thinking about it. 

They don’t say to themselves, I’ll just think positive thoughts. They ask for help from someone outside themselves. 

Reena gives testimony to the fact that other than knowing Christ and receiving His gift of eternal life, healthy relationships make life enjoyable, perhaps more than anything else. 

One of the blessings of her dependence on God and interdependence on fellow beings is that it helped to restore life to God’s design of being relational. 

She has learnt to receive comfort, support, and acceptance from others, which further strengthens her resolve to pursue relationships; the fuel of life.
