|He wanted a Bible with the Old Testament in it too.|
And here was such a precious question for me today, "Mommy, will you go sit with me outside and read with me from my Bible?" These are memories that I will cherish my whole life.
|Still reading in John together|
Oh the joy of raising children for God! Is it easy? No. In fact, to be honest with you, I've been discouraged lately at the constant need on my part to reinforce respect and instant obedience from my little son. (Daddy doesn't seem to have the same problem getting that from him!) He is by no means a perfect child. I would describe him as strong-willed, very sure of himself, and the type that will one day make a great leader. Great traits to have, but this kind of personality does present some challenges in the training years! And I am still so new at this. However, my heart trembles with joy and anticipation as I see God at work in my little boy's heart.
We are purposely going very slow with him. We have taught him about salvation from the time he was born. But we want it to be his decision to ask Jesus into his heart. BJ has a lot more patience than I do, so I just keep sending him to talk with his daddy. They have had some very serious talks together lately, and we both feel that he understands. It is just a matter of time. It may be tomorrow, maybe next week, maybe next year. Please pray with me as my son is not far from the kingdom of God!
