I just put Maggie down for her morning nap. And as I held her for just a minute before sitting in her bed, I was praying for her future and for her salvation. Suddenly it occurred to me that I sort of presume on the Lord's grace. I think that many times when I pray for her salvation, when I pray that she will hate her sin, see her need for the Savior, submit to the Lord, love His church, and live her life as a worshipper of Christ...I just assume that that will definitely happen. On one hand, I feel like that is due to great faith and confidence in the Lord's kindness, compassion, and love! On the other hand I feel like it's because I have become complacent at the thought of the greatness of salvation. Yet again I feel so humbled by the blessed life of mommying!
What do you think? Do you ever feel like that? Praise the Lord that He is sovereign and that the gracious Holy Spirit intercedes on my behalf. Salvation truly is a miraculous and amazing gift! God is so gracious to save sinners, like me. And I trust and pray for the future salvation of my baby Maggie.
Hope you have a great day! God is so good!
