What a blessing.
What an answer to prayer.
Techno and I have prayed for all of our children. That they would all come to a personal decision to ask Jesus to be their Lord and Savior. To acknowledge their need for a savior and then welcome Jesus into their hearts and lives forever.
So far, 5 of the 6 have made that choice. Accepted His precious gift.
We remember how each of our children, thus far, have come to this knowledge. Most were pretty young. One of the benefits of being in a home where the whole family attends church and has accepted Jesus as Lord. Of having the Bible read and taught. Of having family that attempts to live out their faith and love of God and His Son.
Charity has been 'on the cusp' for quite a while.
She knew all the right words. She just hadn't made it personal. Hadn't accepted the gift Jesus put before her.
When asked if she believed Jesus died for HER sins, she'd say, "I don't know."
That changed this week.
Now. She. Knows! And.... believes in her heart it's. for. her.
We rejoice that our precious daughter has also become our sister in Christ. The best, most important decision she will ever make. The one with eternal rewards.
She's looking forward to this coming Sunday when she will be baptized. Demonstrating her obedience and showing others her decision..... To. Trust. JESUS!!!
