"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

Lesson from my daughter


I was walking Maddie to school on Monday morning and she asked me, “Momma, what are you afraid of?”  I said, “roaches”  She said, “what else?”  I said, ‘that I was afraid I wasn’t a good enough mommy or wife.’ She said, “But you are”  Then she asked, “What else?” 
“That I’m not good enough for God”

Her answer… “Well, you’re not, but if you are sorry for the bad things you do, then you can pray and ask for forgiveness and then you won’t go to hell”

WHAT!?!  Oh my precious little daughter.  How my heart just leapt and was so filled with love and pride for her.  My little daughter is learning and listening to me and what they teach her in Sunday School.  She is now the one teaching me! 
I am so proud of my little preschooler!  Such a smart little girl!!

This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.  There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus ~Romans 3:22-25

Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.  Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will never count against him.  ~Romans 4:7-8

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.  And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. ~Romans 5:1-3

Can you tell where I have been reading lately?  Man, what she said went right along with it!!

Talk about sowing good seed in good soil! Wow! I love those moments when God allows us a clear view into our children's hearts so that we can be assured that we're on the right track. Way to go, Sis! Love you!
