A Six Year Old’s Encounter

Eyes glazed over not able to see
The Spirit of God was wooing me…
Funny, buzzing sound, around my ear
Swatting at nothing, nothing I hear…
Blind, but not knowing that I cannot see
There’s someone watching and following me…
Whispering, “Come, come and receive
A special gift, it’s one you need…”
Suzie my friend said, “You wanna go to church?
They talk about Jesus and his very special birth…”
“I’ve never been to church what’s it like?” I say.
“Oh it’s exciting and happy especially when we pray.”
“Ok I guess so; I’ll go with you next Sunday.”
Head pounding, knees shaking, there’s a strange feeling in my heart.
I’ve never heard all this before–
The man said Jesus, is knocking at my hearts door.
Is that why my heart beats so, and if it is, then I want to know…”
Taking steps forward, down the long walk I go…
Straight up to the pastor, “Sir I want to know…
Who is this Jesus, and how does he get in my heart?”
“Little lady its simple, bow your head and we will start; repeat after me.”
“Lord, I’m a sinner and I need to be saved. Come into my heart and I’ll obey. Make me a new creation, transform my soul. So that I can live, like you live Jesus, and let everybody know. Come into my heart, and let me love you the most, in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.”
That buzzing sound I’ve been hearing wasn’t a bug at all…it was just Jesus wanting me to respond to his loving, caring, call…
Saved and redeemed, I’ve learned since then…life’s so much better when we begin…
New born in heaven, new born on earth…I am forgiven and of great worth…
I’m a child of the King, my journey is secure, and with that intact, I’ve got everything!

But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19:14King James Version (KJV)

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often.
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
