This summer, Annie M attended a backyard bible club and one of the evenings, she came home grinning from ear to ear and told us that, “she had asked Jesus to be in her heart and be her best, best, best friend for forever.”
As we talked more about her decision and what it meant, she went on to explain to us about free will, the choices we have and what Jesus has done for us – and she said emphatically, “and I choose Jesus.”
There ya go, y’all.
I choose Jesus. So simple and yet so deep….and something I need to remind myself of daily – to choose Jesus – perhaps even hourly if I am brutally honest, yes??
Anyway, a few weeks went by and one day as I drove, she told me that she wanted to be baptized. I was excited, nervous and had all kinds of emotion as I watched my itty bitty baby grow in her faith, and want to take steps to make it her own right before my eyes.
