"....as a little child."

Our little grandson,  Eli, trusted Jesus as his Savior today!  I am so thankful and joyful about this!  It is an answer to prayer that our family has been praying for for sometime.  

 This is something that had bothered Eli for some time.   Even to the point of his coming to his mom and dad several times  nightly and asking them to pray that he would get saved.  
Tim and Sarah talked with him and prayed with him on different occasions about  this. However, they did not think that he fully understood.  They felt the wise thing to do would be to let him come to them and specifically tell them he was ready to be saved before they led him through the whole plan on salvation.

Last night after coming to their bedroom several times and asking them to pray that he would get saved,  he, finally, the last time he came back,  said, "Mama, I'm ready to be saved"!

Sure enough,  they realized he was definitely ready. They led him through the simple plan of salvation, which,  by the way,  is so simple that a child can understand! 
Mark 10:15
"Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein."    I'm so thankful for this!

This blessed my heart!   What an answer to prayer!

Eli called me a little while ago and said,  "Granna,  guess what happened today"?

"I got saved"!

Believe, you me, that was the best news I've heard today!

My heart is rejoicing!

3 John 1:4
"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth."
