My spiritual birthday!

As we were making our way home on Monday it dawned on me that it was my spiritual birthday that is. When I was a little girl I asked my mom how to get to heaven. She took me by the hand and led me into our kitchen and proceeded to tell me about Jesus and how he came to save the world. She told me that the only way to heaven was through Jesus and that I just had to believe that he came, died for my sins and arose from the grave.

Right then and there at that old farmhouse table I asked Jesus to forgive me and to come into my heart. I remember like it was yesterday, my mom telling me that the angels in heaven were rejoicing over ME and writing MY name down in the Lamb's book of Life. My tender young heart felt forgiven and clean. We wrote it all down on a piece of paper...the scripture, my age and the date. That piece of paper is yellowed with age and has a million little pin hole marks in it, but it is a reminder to me of that special I will never forget. The most important decision I ever made and at the age of 6! What about you have a turning point in your faith walk that you'll never forget??

Have a blessed day.

Pin It!
