Nighttime Musings | Deuteronomy 6: 6-7
This reminds me of when her sister made the jump to sleeping all night. She and I used to get up and watch concert DVD's. I remember that her favorite was the Kirk Franklin concert from his Rebirth album. He performed this at Lakewood Church in Houston, TX. She would always be asleep by the 10th song. It is funny the things you remember. It is so hard to believe that 5 years have passed.
This morning God lead me here to Dueteronomy:
“These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”- Deuteronomy 6: 6-7
A funny thing happened at church last Sunday. Well it isn't really funny as it is awesome. While it is a serious matter I am overjoyed by this. My oldest gave her life to Christ!!!
It totally came out of nowhere. It started with her not wanting to go to her Sunday School Class. Normally I would force the issue, especially on Sunday's that I am singing. However this Sunday I let her stay with my in the Sanctuary and she participated in the Praise and Worship. Then once we began to take communion she got this weird look on her face. Her mother and I have tried to set an atmosphere of praise, worship and study. We are not perfect... Well I am sure about myself. My wide is pretty awesome though.
I asked her if she wanted to take communion, she said yes. I told her that to take part she had to accept Jesus into her life. I explained what that meant and asked her if she still wanted to do it. She said yes so we prayed together and she asked God to come into her heart. We jumped down from the stage and got the communion elements for her. Then we prayed again and we talked about what it meant to be saved. Then she took her first communion.It was awesome. I got back on stage to finish the worship set and my heart was bursting with excitement.
Later that night we were winding down and get a call from one of my friends. He says his wife, who is on the worship team, was telling him about what happened during service. Their daughter, who is friends with my oldest, asked about being saved. This lead them to talk with her about it and in the end she also gave her life to Christ. He said to give my daughter a hug, tell her how happy they were for her. He told me that what we do is never just for us. We all effect each other.
I just wanted to share that with all of you.
Have a great morning!
