God loves him

Thankful Thursday
Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! Psalm 100:3-4

We had been out and arrived home after dark. Dad wasn’t with us. Someone must have left the front door open, because when we pulled up to the dark house we could see right into the living where the light was on. I definitely felt afraid. But before I could even say a word, or even got the car into park, Brice said “let’s pray mommy, before we go inside”. We sat there in the car and he asked God for “no one to be in the house”. Later that evening we were hanging out on the bed and Brice suddenly got quiet. I asked him what was wrong and he told me that he wanted to pray so that he could tell God thank you for taking care of us.

Although it can only be known between him and God, I am pretty sure that Brice (who will be seven in February) has accepted Christ. So, as you might imagine, I have something pretty awesome to be thankful for. Brice’s salvation is such a huge victory for the kingdom. Thinking about the life I once had and the generations of unbelief, I am so thankful for God’s love and grace, that He would bless my family with Himself. That He would give us new lives. Brice was just under three years old when my life was changed and I began my walk with the Lord. It is amazing and humbling for me to think about all that God has done in my life to prepare a way that my son would come to know Him. How much He must love him.

It has been a blessing to see evidence in Brice’s life. He will tell you with no inhibitions that God made him and loves him. He will ask you with a beautiful innocence if you know Jesus. Unprompted and seemingly at random he will sit and read his “early readers” Bible and he gets so excited about the stories. And his prayers are so innocent and uninhibited. He has been an inspiration to my selfish heart. And I am thankful for that too.

  1. How wonderful!! I love the sweet innocence of children, how accepting they are.And reading your post reminded me, as it did Jill, what my life would have been like if I had come to Christ sooner? What would my adult children’s lives be like?But, I thank God that He has unwavering patience and waited and waited for me–using circumstances that were evil in my life for His good now. I still am praying for my 3 children to come to Christ. But, like me–all in God’s time. I know this will happen–in HIS time.Beth

  2. As much as we are ready for Jesus to come get His bride – I’m thankful He is long suffering and patient. It was only three years ago that I came to His feet and just two weeks ago my Mom – who almost died twice this past year.Our children all that can make a decision – only 3 left that are too young to know what it all means – have made the choice for Jesus. I know your joy and the most amazing is to see the fruit in their lives at such young ages. I think what would life have been like for me if I could have known Him then as a child? I praise God it wasn’t too late for me to come and that He still loved me after 37 yrs of sin after sin and my fists shaking at His Son’s name. Oh thank You LORD!Praying for Brice to group deep in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior – Jesus Christ!In His grace,Jill
