Yesterday in service at our Puyupungo church, as we were singing, “I have decided to follow Jesus”, I noticed 11 year old Rachel worshiping the Lord. Her eyes were tightly shut, her hands raised in the air to Him. It was as if no else was there, just her and Jesus in the room. As I continued singing, I thought to myself how beautiful she looked in her worship to God.
After service I told her that I had seen her sincerely praying to God while we sang that song, and I asked her, “Rachel what were you thinking about at that time? or what were you feeling?” She said, “Hermana Susana, I was just thinking that I never want to go away from the Lord, I never want to go away from Him. Ever”.
Oh, my heart just swelled because Rachel has only known God’s love in the last 6 months. Before that, her family never served God, or never even knew about Him. And in such a short time, He has done miracles in this child’s life.
Such wise words from such a little girl. I never felt more proud. And I thought, “Me, too, Rachel. I never want to go away from God either. Me, too”.
