I Have a New Sister
A sister in Christ, that is. Ella asked God to come into her heart tonight and Erik and I were so proud and THANKFUL to be home to talk with her and walk her through a sinners prayer. God has been tugging on her heart for some time now, but I am thankful she waited to do this with us. What a blessing. Just when we needed something super positive in our life, God answered in a big way! Welcome to the family of Christ my sweet, sweet Ella. Mommy is so proud that you will forever live in heaven with Jesus and it gives me such joy to know we will always be together.
I have a plaque hanging in my kitchen that reads "I could have no great joy than to hear that my children are walking in truth." I have always prayed for my children's salvation but have spent more time praying for Ella lately. I am so glad to see that prayer come to fruition.
It might be a little tricky getting to church anytime soon, but I can't wait to see Ella go before our church for her public profession of faith and then witness her baptism. GOD IS GOOD!
