I Will Follow {HIM}

by Jesse on November 7, 2011

A few weeks ago Rhett came out of his class at Church with a packet. He says to me as I am picking him up, “mom I raised my hand and I got this!”

I had a pretty good idea what it was and almost cried at the thought of it.

So when we got in the car I opened up his packet and tried reading it to him.

TEARS

I know, what a baby I am!

It was exactly what I thought it was, a letter stating Rhett had shown interest in giving his life to Christ!

As they do the prayer in his classroom they are given the opportunity to give their lives to Christ. It is purely their decision. As a matter of fact Rhett said he was 1 of only a very few kids in his class who had raised their hands and chosen to take the next steps in their journey with Christ.

I was overjoyed and excited for Rhett! I sat and talked with him and explained what this meant and what he was committing himself to do, if he chose to continue on. He was so excited to show his love for God in an outward way with baptism.

So each week we completed a lesson, learning different things about what Rhett was about to do. Sunday was the big day! He had been counting down and couldn’t hardly stand it he was so excited!

He even got to be the first one baptized that night!

Dunk!

He was so proud of himself…

and we are SO proud of such a big decision!

I love you Rhett to the moon and back!!

Oh and one more bit of news that is related. I listed a new print to the shop. It reads “Smile, You are Blessed!”

I actually read this post the day you posted it, but got sidetracked on commenting. I can’t wait for this day with my own children. I know it will be so emotional. I bawled watching all the kids get baptized at the Easter service. We serve and amazing God, and I’m so happy for Rhett’s decision at such an early age. What an amazing moment in history for your family!

I’m often surprised at the spirituality of young children. Never underestimate them.
