I think he was a gift given to me in the secret place of suffering. And, wow, is he a treasure.
About 3 weeks ago, he gave his life to Christ and asked Him to come into His heart. It was beautiful. His 2 older brothers and his dad and I all prayed over his life. I know God is going to use him in mighty ways. Since his prayer to give his life to Christ, he has started reading the Bible on his own (even though he can barely read). He won't eat breakfast until he has spent time in God's Word. His brothers have modeled that for him. Now, he takes it very seriously. My older 3 boys have all given their lives to Jesus Christ and I have seen fruit in each of them. A hunger for God's Word is obvious fruit that the Holy Spirit is leading Lake. The Holy Spirit always points us to Christ... a.k.a.. The Word of God. I pray that my kids stay close to the Word their whole lives.
"He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the LORD has planted for his own glory. "
