The parents of one of our four-year old church kids told us a story that made me laugh so hard I almost lost my breath. A little girl told the little boy she wanted to marry him. He told the little girl, "I'm not ready for a relationship."

While I think that is funny, I've heard adults tell God, "I'm not ready for a relationship." Well, they didn't exactly say it out loud. They just refused to respond when he invited them to be his child.

I often wonder why anyone would refuse such an offer. Wow! The kid of the God of the universe. Such an honor!

He invited me to be part of the family when I was 16 years old. A pastor in our community came to our house and told me God loved me, had a plan for my life, and sent his Son to die for my sins so I wouldn't have to pay for them. All I had to do was ask him to forgive me of my sins and let him take control of my life. That day, I became God's child!

Are you ready for a relationship with God? I'd love to welcome another person into our family. There's always room for one more!

Hoping to see many choose a relationship with the Mighty God, Gloria
