Let the Children Come to Me...Luke 18:15-17



















Some of you may already know but Tyler had been asking for about the past month or so about "how he can get Jesus in his heart." In my faith, we believe in John 3:16 where when you come of age to have the decision to believe in God and give your life to Him and ask Him into your heart. Tyler has always loved praying and when he asked me about this I was really caught off guard. I kinda thought to myself that he's just curious and not really ready but maybe just has allot of questions. He's only 5! I called my mom and she said not to quench it so I kinda explained to him as much as I could on his level about that there is a prayer we pray when he is ready to make that decision and that at that time God would forgive him of his sins and Tyler would need to let Him be Lord of his life.

A got some books at Mardel's that explained the Easter story and helped him understand that Easter was not about hunting eggs and getting candy. The week Haylee had the Flu Ryan took Tyler to church with him and on their way Tyler asked the same question. "How do I get Jesus in my heart?" He told Ryan that he wanted Jesus in his heart. So Ryan explained the same thing over again and led him in the prayer.

They told me when they got home and it just make me cry. I am so thankful...I have always prayed for Tyler and his salvation and it just over joys me to know that he will meet his Savior someday!!

I keep forgetting to talk to you about this. The day that Ryan took Tyler to church he shared this with the class and we were so happy. That is amazing. Jesus really did bring little Ty in, didn't He? So happy for you guys...

Tyler, grandma & grandpa Crissey are so proud of you. You were persistant in doing what God wanted you to do - asking Him into your heart. We pray you will always have that urgency to follow God in everything you do.

Even with imperfections, your children are watching you Robin & Ryan & God blesses those efforts to serve & live for Him.
