Geeze. I just can't keep up. I feel one (or maybe two or three) steps behind everything that needs to be taken care of these days.....so, of course, this little blog has taken the back burner because quite frankly at night time, the only time I have to blog, I am exhausted and can't seem to speak in complete sentences let alone write out actual thoughts or major events that have occurred. With all of that being said, I did not want to pass over the biggest event that has transpired in our house this past month. This by far is the greatest accomplishment in our house to date.
On February 8, 2014, in the car, on our way to our niece Mollie's 5th birthday party, Maddox said "Momma, I am ready to ask Jesus in my heart. I prayed by myself last night, but I want to do it with you today"
I may have nearly had a wreck while driving as my eyes filled with tears and I began chatting with our eldest little boy about what it means to be a follower of Christ. I asked him all sorts of questions and he knew every answer with confidence.
Here were a few of the questions I asked him followed by his answer
Why do we need Jesus in our lives? Because we all sin and he loves us enough to wash our sins away
What does it mean to sin? To do anything that isn't right. We all sin momma, but He forgives us
What did Jesus do for us? He died on the cross to save us.
What happened after he died? Three days later he came back
Momma, I want Jesus to live in my heart and show me to do what is right.
Wow. What a smart little boy. He seems to get it. As much as you can at 6 years old (which in all actuality is probably more than some grown adults get it. It is fascinating to watch true child like faith. There is no doubt or questioning.)
I am so very proud of this life changing decision Maddox has made to love the Lord and follow Him. Now to guide his little heart to pursue Jesus more and more everyday. There is no doubt he will change the world.
