Faith Like a Child

Ok, I'm going to share a personal story - not to brag - there is a lesson.  It is easy to talk about all the cute things our kids say, the sweet things they do, and just simply how precious they are.  I probably share too much about my kids at times - and I'm trying to be more sensitive to that.  But, what I witnessed today was so encouraging.  It just proved to me that kids really are listening to what we teach and say.  And, God uses children, too!

Audrey and Maddie had some friends over to play with for a little while this morning.  I overheard part of Audrey's conversation with her friend.  It went like this:  "I got baptized.  Do you know what that means?  Do you know where Jesus lives today?  In my heart.  Have you made that decision yet?  That is the most important decision you will ever make."  Those, my friends, are some powerful words no matter who says them, but coming from a 6-year old kinda blew me away.  How many of us adults have the courage to say those words?  That was a proud moment!

Even little Maddie is starting to "get it".  A couple of days ago Audrey said her foot was hurting.  Maddie said, "If you want it to feel better, all you have to do is ask Jesus."  Oh, to have faith like a child!

    You don't share too much about your kids - I love reading your posts! Please don't let us miss out on any "Audreyisms"! :-)

    Thanks, Darsi!! I guess for now it's ok since Audrey isn't into reading blogs. lol I'm just trying to be sensitive about what I share about her, especially in front of her. I'm guilty of telling the cute things she does and I think it embarrasses her.

  1. I am so proud of her. Most kids that age do not even come close to understanding salvation and Baptism but she really does get it! And you never share too much about them. You know I love it!
