Forever Changed!

The building where our church meets used to be a roller skating rink.  And back when the skating rink was first purchased and construction of the remodel began many members of the church went to the building and wrote names on the walls and floor of lost people who need to be saved.  

Joshua and I wrote Luke’s name on a wall.  I wish I could recall which wall it was, but I can’t.  It was dark and honestly, they all looked the same to me back then.  But they are not.  One of those walls has our son’s name on it.  Somewhere under the pretty paint that is there now, the name “LUKE” is written in marker. 

Lately Luke has been asking more and more questions about Jesus and I knew that his salvation was not far away.  Earlier this week Luke said he was ready to ask Jesus into his heart.  Josh and I both talked to him and he understands he is a sinner.  He understands there is no way he can be good enough to get to heaven.  He knows he needs help and he needs a Savior.  He knows Jesus is the only way to salvation.

He knows that Jesus died for him.

As I sat and listened to him pray to ask Jesus into his heart and to forgive him of his sins tears filled my eyes and my heart felt as if it would burst wide open.   

Luke is no longer just my son here on Earth.  He will forever be my brother in Christ.

Praise God!!

There was not only a change in him that day, but a change in me.  I love the feeling I have inside knowing he has made the most important decision in his life.



I love you Luke and Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you!  We are so excited to watch and help you as you learn more and more about Jesus and grow in your relationship with Him!!
