So last night I overheard the girls talking about Jesus being in Addie's heart....so I went in to investigate. Alexis is excited and says.
' guess what,mom?!' Addie asked her what hell was and Alexis described it as a place where Satan lived and Jesus didn't. It was a hot and scary place, but if you love Jesus-you won't go there.
Addie tells her she loves Jesus and doesn't want to be anywhere Satan is because he is bad. So Alexis led her in prayer and had her tell Jesus she wanted him in her heart!!!! Love those girls. So as I was talking with Alexis how proud I was of her for helping her sister- she says she doesn't remember asking Jesus in her heart. I remind of her of her first year as a Sparky at Awana and she asked Jesus in with Megan and Julia...she doesn't remember. So i ask her if she loves God, if she believes he died and rose again for her sins and if she believes he will come back for us. She says YES! Is that it? she asks. God makes it so simple for us-even a child can do it. We talked more on what God expects form us as his family-Ephesians is great for this. I am so grateful that is the book I am studying...I am just so JOYFUL knowing my girls will be with their heavenly father someday by their choice. Praise the LORD!
