No Greater Joy…

November 30th 2013,

Today, at the kitchen table, dressed as Cinderella with her crown on, my first-born gave her life to Jesus. At that moment angels sang, a name was written, and the Holy Spirit removed the sin and entered that sweet innocent heart of hers. Her prayer was so simple, beautiful, and life changing. She told me that she knew Jesus died on the cross for her. She believes Jesus became alive again three days later, and she knows she is going to heaven. No hesitations or questions. I am humbled and stand in amazement to see her child like faith in action.

I have failed countless times but God is always faithful and fills in the numerous gaps I create. To know that He has been pursuing her and speaking to her despite all of my imperfections amazes me. God truly uses my children to mold me, sharpen me, and to see Him through fresh eyes. To see Him for what He truly is…our Saviour. He has sanctified me through them and reveals Himself in such mighty ways. He is giving me glimpse of the fruit my children will produce, and it makes me want to cling to God that much tighter to keep watching the fruit grow.

 

3 John 1:4 “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.” I have experienced this first hand today and it leaves me motivated and determined to speak and live truth every single day. Thank you God for a very blessed day!

    Love to see testimonies of God’s grace in our children’s life, and how He is faithful to those who point the little ones to Him for LIFE that this world will never offer them.

    Thank you Brittany for sharing! We are raising the next generation of Christian Warriors!

    Brittany, We were so excited when Willow called us and shared that she had accepted Jesus. It is such a joy to know that our grandchildren are being raised to know God’s word and cling to His promise of salvation. As I read this blog, tears welled up in my eyes. Thank you for sharing the awesomeness of salvation. Jesus said that it is so simple that a child can understand. We are so blessed to know that our precious Willow understands and that her name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Praise the Lord! I also know that the Lord will richly bless you and Tim for raising your children to know Him! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    oh, such sweetness! 🙂 we tend to overcomplicate our faith and it is so refreshing to see it through their eyes; so simple and direct.
