John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Luke 18:16-17 But Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."
On the evening of September 7, 2007, Harrison asked Jesus to be his Savior, to come into his heart. We have been talking a lot about this for months. He's been asking so many questions and in particular questions about Heaven this week. I sat down with some story cards from a friend at church called the Salvation Series from Abeka. They were great! They really explained things at his level and it was clear God was speaking to his little heart. Things clicked like they had never before. It was such a privilege for both Anthony and I to be part of this special decision made by Harrison! Harrison prayed his own sweet prayer to the Lord and then Anthony guided him through prayer. I can't tell you how I have begged the Lord to capture the hearts of my children while they are young. I know he will continue to give his heart to Jesus more and more as he grows in the Lord. His heart has been so tender this weekend reflecting on his decision and he has been so excited! What a blessing!
Lord, thank you so much for Harrison! Thank you so much for his love for you and his desire to love and serve you at his young age of 5 1/2 years old. Help him to love you and serve you all the days of his life! Help him to grow in your love and never doubt that you have a plan for his life! I love him so much and I feel so honored that you have given him to us. Lord, help us to teach him your ways and to always point him to you.
