Tears are streaming down my face. Tonight, a prayer was answered that my soul had been longing to see answered.
Brody is very much like his father. He never jumps into anything just because it's cool or because it's a new opportunity. He has to know the reasons that support his decisions and he thinks about them before he takes the leap. He has been telling us (mainly Barrett who keeps asking him) that he isn't ready to give his life to Jesus. He has said for several years that he wants to wait until he his older so that he understands more. Barrett prays for Brody every night...asking God to show Brody how much he needs Jesus. Brody is very involved in our morning Bible studies and has always been eager to learn more about God.
I was totally taken off guard tonight when Brody came inside from his walk with Winchester. He walked up to me and said, "Momma. I did something while I was on my walk." I was probably only half listening when I said, "What?".....but his next words got my attention immediately.
"I gave my life to Jesus!"
Immediately tears began to fall down my face as I hugged my first born. I have been praying for this day since before this child was even conceived. I know that this wasn't something Brody just did on a whim...because that's not the way Brody makes decisions. He must have been thinking about this for some time now. I am so thankful that he has decided to follow Jesus!
If you know Brody, you know that he doesn't do anything in life halfheartedly. I can't wait to see what amazing things he will do for Jesus in his pursuit to follow in the steps of our savior!
Today the angels in Heaven are rejoicing with me and Mike over the decision of a precious little boy!
