Romans 10:9

That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Romans 10:9

Our sweet girl asked Jesus into her heart on Friday night.  She has been asking so many questions about heaven and how to pray so that she can be with Jesus in heaven one day.  We have discussed at length what Jesus did for us by dying on the cross so that our sins could be forgiven so that we could be reconciled with God by Jesus' sacrifice.  I told her about the "special" prayer that I prayed as a little girl telling Jesus thank you for what He did for me.  I told her when she was ready to just ask Chris or myself and we would be happy to pray with her. 
Friday night, both Chris and I were exhausted from the week.  We were sitting on the sofa discussing who was going to go upstairs to tuck everyone in bed.  After much discussion, I slowly peeled myself off the couch and headed up to say good night.  Hayley and I said bedtime prayers together and as I leaned over to kiss her, she sweetly said, "Mommy, I'm ready to pray the special prayer." 
We sat on her bed and together told Jesus just how much we love him.  We told him that we know we are sinners and that we believe that He is God's One and Only Son.  We thanked Him for dying on the cross and forgiving all of our sins.  And then she asked Him to be the Lord of her life.  She asked Him into her heart. 
My baby girl made the most important decision that she will ever make in her entire life and my heart rejoices.  She is not mine, she belongs to Him.  Praise Him.

So glad God pushed me off the sofa and up to her room that night.  So thankful.
