Superb Sunday Morning to ya SweetSoul!

‘If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation.’ (Romans 10:9, 10 HCSB)

I do not know how he got roped into teaching Training Union for 5th and 6th grade girls. He was wondering the same thing I am sure. Perhaps nobody else would take us … and, they said “Carl has lots of experience”, being that he was raising a houseful of females. Nevertheless, we were stuck.
And, low and behold the old man (anyone over 40 is old to a 12 year old) was telling us to write in our Bibles. Horrorhhhhs!
” I don’t write in my bible”, I told him.
Carl replied, “you’re going to write this”.
“Mmm, my mom might get mad.”
“Then your mom can take that up with me later. Angie, pick up that pen and write this on the back page.”

I wasn’t getting anywhere. So, I picked up the pen and wrote. But, not before Deedra, Cendy, Sonya, Glenda and I exchanged eye-rolls.

Carl’s bullying to make me write the plan of salvation in this rebel-child’s Bible sparked something. He knew a time would come when I would need it. When others would need it from me. Even when I dug in my heels, he knew.

God does that with us too, doesn’t He?
We rebel. He pushes.
We look away. He moves with us.
We make excuses. He says HE will deal with that.
He doesn’t give up.

The first thing I do with every new bible is turn to the back cover … And write the plan of salvation.

You need to write it in yours too. No back talk. Just do it.
