I cannot express what a happy mommy I am this morning! I’ve been longing and praying that KT encounters God long before I can tell her about Jesus. Of course I will keep telling her about Jesus and all that He has done is our lives, but then, I don’t want to restrict her understanding of God with my limited knowledge. I want God to reveal Himself to her in unique ways that from a very young age, long before she could read the Bible or comprehend a God, she’ll discover Him as a person – someone very real, someone that she can literally see and speak to. In other words, I want to discover Jesus through my little girl!
And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
This morning she was fast asleep. It was time to get ready for school. I kept waking her up. But she was deep in sleep. All of a sudden, with her eyes still closed, in a gentle, sleepy, but serious tone she whispered, “Amma, Jesus is in my heart!”
I was baffled. It’s something we never taught her to say.
Although a very simple statement. I strongly believe the Lord has begun His work in her little heart =)
