New Life in Christ

Saturday was a moment in my life that I will never forget.

Saturday sunny and cool, a day with our family, being outside together working around the was a good day, later on it was the best day.

Little K has been asking questions and a few days ago said he wanted to ask Jesus into his heart, but wanted to wait until his dad was home. So we talked with him on our front porch at our house on April 28, 2012.

He said all that showed he has the faith of a child, faith I can learn a lot from.

Said all the things that are sometimes hard for grown-ups to believe, but he said them very confident and matter-of-fact...

Then said he didn't want to do it right now and walked away.

About an hour later, I had thought it was over, but Little K said, “Mom, I want to ask Jesus into my heart right now.”

Those words are seared into my mind...on my heart...just typing it now makes me smile.

Praying on our front porch with my son and my husband...a holy moment happened.

My oldest son, whom I have prayed almost every night of his life that he'd “be a man of God and the words he speaks be truth,” chose to trust in what is unseen, to give his life to something bigger than himself, to believe that Jesus is who he said he is.

I love that boy.

I'm so thankful, my heart overflows.

He is a new creation, the old is gone the new has come.

There was a party in Heaven on Saturday for one little lost sheep was found, one little 6 year old boy made the decision of his life.

He decided to follow Jesus....

And I look forward to watching and praying for him the rest of my life to see what plans God has for him.

Thank you God for saving my son. Thank you God for making him whole and loving him and forgiving him. Help him to move and learn and grow closer to you all the days of his life. May his little light always glorify you!
