170- Timmy’s Faith
November 30, 1985
Train up a child…. Proverbs 22:6
I have been asking the Lord for the boys to have personal walks with Him.
Here’s what’s been happening:
*at meal times, all of a sudden they all want a turn to pray. And they make up original prayers!
*I ask them to pray at school time or for somebody’s hurt, and someone will.
*The other night we had to get a message to Dan (who was working) about the generator at church. It was dinnertime and I was in the midst of figuring out where I’d erred on a batch of cookies and trying to grate potatoes for hash browns, etc. Before we took off, we sat in the car and prayed and I confessed my bad attitude.
We spent 10 or 15 minutes unable to find Dan’s truck. Timmy said, HE WILL MAKE YOUR PATH STRAIGHT (from Proverbs 3:5,6)—which they have memorized.
I said, “You’re right! and we’ve been going REAL crooked.”
We claimed it by faith and drove right to the house!
Of course, seeing Tim’s 6 year old faith in action was worth the time and the crooked path.
