Tonight, after we finished reading your new bible, you looked inside the front cover. Next to a picture of a cross John 3:16 was printed.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son. That whoever believes in him will not perish, but have everlasting life."
You were curious so I explained what it meant. I told you that God sent his son to earth to die for our sins and that if we believe in him and ask him into our heart we will live forever in heaven. Your response was, "I want to live in heaven forever with Jesus and God!"
I've asked you before if you wanted to pray and accept him into your heart and you always replied with a strict "No." This is such an important and life changing decision I never wanted you to feel forced- even if you waited until you were 90 to do it I wouldn't be any less proud than I am right now.
Your prayer was simple, "Dear Jesus, come into my heart. Amen" Oh, Sweet Girl, I hope someday soon you realize how important those words truly are. I know this is only the beginning of your journey of faith- and I know God has prepared you in advance for amazing things!!
I love you SO much and I am so so proud of you.
