We have had a lot of excitement around our home lately. Our son, Colson, recently asked Jesus to be his Lord and Savior! What an amazing experience we have had as his parents to walk him through that! The other day Colson had to get tubes in his ears. As we were leaving our vehicle to walk into the clinic, Colson very confidently said, “Mommy and daddy, I have double protection because I am a follower of Jesus!” Immediately, peace flooded my being. My son reminded me of a powerful truth in that moment: Jesus makes all the difference! When we have Jesus in our lives, He gives peace, comfort, joy, provision, grace and life! Jesus said in John 10:10, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
I am so thankful for the abundant life that Jesus gives me, His child. He truly makes all of the difference in my life. Because of Jesus, I can walk through life with peace and assurance because He knows what is best for me. He comforts me in times of trial, He rejoices over me, sings over me and gives me eternal life! When I face a difficult situation, I am going to try my best to face it with the confidence of my six year old! After all, I am a follower of Jesus, I have double protection!!
