Calling on Jesus

Every time Melody goes to get her bike out of the garage I always tell her “Watch out for the Highlander. Don’t hit it with your bike.

Well, this afternoon she went to ride her bike while Josh and I were in the kitchen when all the sudden I heard a thud. I went out in the garage to find this…


I looked down as her precious face looked up at me and with tears in her eyes she said “This happened. And I just prayed to Jesus. I prayed that he would tell you and you would come out here and help me.”

My heart was happy.

I have been teaching Melody that in “freak out” moments we don’t freak out…we pray. We call on Jesus. And although this was such a minor incident, this was her “freak out” moment. It wasn’t a minor deal to her.

This is where it starts. This is where the training is. The garage. The home. The playground. The dinner table.

To see training pay off brought joy to this momma’s heart.

Psalm 145:18 says that the Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.

There’s no situation too small and there’s no situation too big for Jesus. He wants to be the one we call out to first, every time. When an “uh oh” moment happens, we pray.
