May 2008

May 13, 2008, that is the time that Morgan will remember as the time she asked Jesus into her heart. She might not remember all the fine details or how the conversation came up with me but she will remember that sweet time of praying and confriming her spot with Christ in eternity.
We were driving home from school yesterday when Morgan share with me that a little girl in her class told her she didn't believe in God. (girls tell you EVERYTHING about their day) Anyways, Morgan said,"mommy, are you sure I am going to heaven?" I asked her what the bible said about that and she explained to me that you needed to believe that Jesus died for your sins and that he rose again. I asked her a few more questions and she informed that she had never really asked for God to physically come into her heart but that she did love him and desire to serve him. She said she sometimes forget to ask him to forgive her for stuff she does wrong.
So now by this point I am driving through a lump in my throat the size of Texas and tears that welled up that wont drop. She said when we get home tonight after swimming can we pray? Uhhhh yaaaaa!!!!! :) So we did just that. After we prayed she said,"I feel different, like God moved into my heart and took up a little space in there." Oh sweet girl, hes been there since the day I looked into your new born eyes you just finally put all the pieces together and saw how much you are worth to him. We talked about how people get to choose who they love and how great our God is that he doesn't force anybody to love him or serve him. I reminder her that for her entire time on earth people are going to tell her things they believe or dont believe in and she as a lover of the Lord just has to go back to her roots and to continue to write his word on her heart so she is grounded. I pray that as you grow Morgan you will not take my or daddy's word only on Gods grace but that you would seek, and ask search out his truth and mercy for yourself. Move mountains for his names sake. I love you and honestly last night made my life very rich.

goosebumps. wow, what a precious moment and how sweet that you got to be the one that walked her through it all. i feel like God uses moments like this to restore to us "adults" some of our childlike innocence.

Isn't that just the best? I mean, that is what it is all about - raising kids that love God and desire to share his love with others. I LOVE Morgan's sweet spirit that is so sensitive to God. I think that May 2008 is a time you will always remember too.
