My oldest daughter, Lauren, was saved on June 8 of this year. She had made a profession of faith when she was six, but had doubted it a lot since then. I was so excited that she got it settled during our revival meeting this past summer. We were thrilled and relieved that her doubts had been put to rest. It was one of the happiest days of my life!
On September 5, I was blessed with another one of the happiest days of my life! That night, during the Lord’s supper, my son, Mitchell, sweetly trusted Christ through tears of repentance. He wept as our church family came to him after the service and hugged his neck. He had been talking to Lauren about it, and she encouraged him to get it settled. What a joy my children are to me! I am beginning to feel the power of the verse “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.” 3 John 4. I hope and pray that this joy gets multiplied as my children grow and as the younger ones begin to understand the truths of the Gospel. I pray the Holy Spirit convicts them and draws them while they are young. A life lived for Christ is a life with few regrets.
On October 24, 2010, we held a baptismal service at church and saw three precious souls baptized and join the church. My Mom was able to join us for this special day. The night before, Mitchell caught some sort of stomach bug. He was so afraid it would keep him out of church the next day. We prayed and asked the Lord to do a healing work on him so he could be there, and the Lord healed him! He awoke the next day feeling great!
Here are few photos of this very special day for us.
Blessed beyond measure,
One thought on “No Greater Joy”
Love the pictures. It is such a joy when we see our kids come to God and then are baptized. I am so happy for you.
