My worry was that she is too young & doesn't really understand. Although Beau & I both felt that Piper would be young when she accepted Christ. Beau said he really believes her. It's not that I didn't I just wanted to make sure. I spent that night & the next morning praying. I talked to Marca who is someone I would ask for advice or encouragement. She told me that Piper believes with all her heart that she asked Jesus into her heart. She talked about the childlike faith. I also called Jacque Gordon our children's minister. She talked about how we as adults make things so difficult I wanted her to of course meet with Piper. She meet with Piper & really felt that Piper understood sin & what it means to have Jesus be the boss of your life. After much prayer & getting advice from others that I trust, I am happy to say that my Piper Annabeth has Jesus in her heart. I didn't want to doubt what the Lord was doing in my little girls heart. IF after all, she didn't quite understand it all we will know later on down the road. Right now we will rejoice!
When Beau & I talked to her about it we both just had tears rolling down our face. I told her that more than ANYTHING in this life that is what her daddy & I pray for the most. More than, college, future husband, and so on.
I also want to add that Beau & I have NEVER discussed what it takes to have Jesus in your heart. We never wanted to push it on her & we knew when the time came that she would know. We thought it was amazing how she felt led to go to her room & do it all on her own. Well, the Lord doing it. When I asked her if she did it while she was playing in her room she said "no, I went to my room so that I could do it." AMAZING!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH JESUS!!!!!
