Tonight was a pretty incredible night for our oldest. He finally decided it was time to get baptized. He asked Jesus into his heart probably a year or so ago. And he knew he needed to be baptized, but fear won. I'm proud of his decision to finally step out and get baptized.
I remember a conversation from a few weeks back.
Dakota: "Mom, you know... *giving me time to probably guess what he was saying* ....people don't know that I am saved."
Me: "Well, you can tell them that you are saved. you can tell them about Jesus."
Dakota: "If I got baptized, then everyone would know." *smiling big*
Me: "Yes, you can do that, too."
Dakota and our Pastor are the best of friends. I love that Dakota has a close bond with his Pastor at such an early age. This assures me that in his time of need, he has someone (besides his daddy) to look to for guidance.
I can't say that we are the best of Christians, but we strive to make sure our children know about God.
We saw the sky on the way home this evening. It was neat to see a beautiful reminder from God. God is Good. Things happen in His time.
My baby boy is growing up and making decisions. Right decisions. I hope and pray that he will continue to lead him on the path that God has for him. Join me and pray for Dakota.
God is Good!
