I had a long discussion with Will yesterday regarding some behavior that was of grave concern to me and to God. He was repentant towards the end of our discussion and then wanted to whisper in my ear something. He whispered, “Mommy, do you know why I am bad every day?” I asked him why that was. He said, “Because I haven’t seen Jesus. I don’t know that Jesus died on the cross.” I was able to take that opportunity to give Will evidence that shows God does exist, to discuss faith (it’s a fabric of every area of our lives — even the atheist), and then to show him why not having a belief in God doesn’t change the truth of what is nor the consequences of our actions. I gave him various examples, and he seemed to understand what I was saying. We then ended our discussion in prayer. There is a battle waging within his soul; it is crucial — one that will ultimately determine the direction of his life. My daily prayers are that he will choose to believe and to follow a life that alone leads to peace, joy, love, and eternal life!
