A couple of nights ago I was riding in the backseat with Gabi. I can’t remember for the life of me how the conversation got started but out of what seemed like the clear blue, Gabi started to talk.
She said, “Mama, I prayed and I asked Jesus to come into my heart and be my Savwer.”
Me: “You did? That is wonderful, honey!”
Gabi: “I said, “Thank you for dying on the cross to be my Savwer.”
Me: “I’m so excited! Baby, you are right! Jesus died on the cross for your sins to be your Savior. “
Gabi: “Yea, I told him He could be in my heart but I still wanted to live with you, Mama.”
*sigh* She’s beginning to understand sin and her need for a Savior. I ask, some nights I beg, for all of my children’s hearts to be HIS, for Christ to claim them as his own. For years now, I’ve asked every single day for my kids’ salvation. This is a prayer that God wants to say yes to so I’m just watching for those little windows, like this one with Gabriella, to open. And it is moments like these, when I realize He is readying their hearts. I am most powerful on my knees.
I approach God’s throne with confidence because of Christ’s death for me. I plan to go in boldly again and again. Want to join me?
