Praise God - She Gets It!!

Recommended Posts

I have to share what my daughter told me last night. She is eight years old and in the third grade. She came in the kitchen while I was making dinner and said that she had told this kid about God and the Bible and that he had never heard of either one. That got my attention!

 

The whole story is that he is from Vietnam and nobody has really befriended him, so if he wanted to talk – it was going to be her. She told him everything that she could about God, the Bible, and how we need to be baptized. PRAISE GOD!!

 

((She then asked if she could have a cookie, because she didn't get to each lunch because they were talking so much. Sacrifice and evangelizing. :D )))

 

This morning we were talking about how many crowns (in Heaven) she thought she would get for such an obedient act. She then thought that this guy needed his own Bible. We ended up giving him one of MY old Bibles. It was my first Bible, but no one uses it. We signed his name in the front and dated it (over the 1981 date) and off she went to school.

 

In our morning prayer she prayed that God would put a hedge around her and Tyler because she knew that "Those" demons would be after her now.

 

She gets it. She really gets it. I give her up to God; I place her at the foot of his throne. And I thank God that he has allowed me to witness such a miracle in spiritual growth. Amen. Amen. Amen

 

Love in Christ,

Eileen

Eileen - that is awesome! You are so right - praise God for letting us be witnesses to the boldness and obedience of young faith.

Update

 

I have to update you on what happened when Claire brought this little boy the Bible. I picked her up in carpool that day and she was still holding onto the Bible.

 

I cringed and cautiously asked if he didn't want it. She said 'no' in fact the previous night his Mom took him out and they bought a Bible. IS THAT AWESOME???? This family, I think, will be on my prayer list until the day I die. :)

 

Cool eh?

 

Love in Christ,

Eileen

Double - no, triple awesome! It's such a treat the way God brings people across our paths and lets us be a part of His call to them.
