Sunday night was very special in our house.
her own words, "asked Jesus to be her Savior from her sins!"
I have spent a lot of time thinking about whether to post about this
event or not. All things blogged are for posterity, right? My children
have LONG and very detailed baby books. HA!
As I tucked her in I sang one of the favorites in our
house..."Change my heart oh God..." As I sang she was feeling for her
heartbeat. She couldn't feel it so I helped her. As she felt her heart
beat she said, "What about Caleb's heart...is it beating?" I told her
that if your heart stops beating you die. I told her that's why the
words of the song talk about changing your heart to be like
God...because all of our hearts are sinful.
pondered this a bit...and tearfully said, "I don't want to die with sins
in my heart!" NOW...here's the point where I could have just
said, "Well, pray this prayer dearie and you've received your salvation
shot...don't ever worry about it again."...but I didn't...As Jesus so
often did, I asked another question..."What do you know about that sin
in your heart? Who could do something about it?"
said, "If I pray and tell Jesus I'm sorry for my sins...he'll wash my
sins away." I asked if she had ever done that before...and she said
no. I told her that she could pray at any time and he would save her.
She said she wanted to pray right then...
