Praise the Lord...

My little boy said the salvation prayer tonight and I could not be happier.
It happened after Papa read from their Bible (he does this every night).
Let me set it up for you.
They were reading the last couple of pages in the kid's Bible. It was about Jesus coming back soon and how he will take those that believe in him to heaven. After reading the story Little Man had a lot of questions for Papa. He wanted to know when Jesus would be coming back and how will he take us to heaven. Papa explained to him that we don't know when he will come back but that we do know that he is preparing a place for us and that he will soon come back and get those that believe in him and take us to heaven. Little man than asked us if we were going to heaven and we answered yes. He asked who else will be going to heaven when Jesus comes and we told him that everyone who believes that Jesus is who he says he is and that he died for our sins is saved and will go to heaven. He wanted to know how he can know that he will go to heaven too and we told him, then we guided him as he said the salvation prayer.
We are so excited for him. We told him that now he is official a Christian, a follower of Jesus. We hugged and rejoiced and praised the Lord for his new decision and then tucked him in bed. He is so excited about this discovery that he wanted to know if his friends knew about heaven and how to get there. He can't wait to share his news with everyone at co-op next week.

Praise the Lord for he is Faithful and answers the prayers of his children. I have been praying for this day for so long. Praise the Lord!!!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow! What a true joy to hear your son give his heart to the Lord. That's what all of our striving and work is all about, preparing little hearts to meet Jesus!
