I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. - 3John 1:4 (The Bible)
These were words my Ammachy wrote in a little journal or sorts. We found this after she had gone to heaven after 3 years of cancer.
Nanma has been making me think of this verse a lot these days. I have been talking to her about Jesus since she was 1 or so and we've been praying together for some time now. I didn't really know what her understanding of God was and whether prayer was just a routine for her. She would say things like "Jesus is inside my tummy" that would make us laugh! She is so precious!
The other day, I saw her struggle to open an umbrella. I did nothing to help her and I watched from the other room to see what she would do. After a little bit she managed to get it open. Immediately she looked up at the roof, smiled and said "Thank you Jesus!" My heart just welled up with happiness and I remembered the verse Ammachy wrote down in her journal all those years ago.
Truly, I have no greater joy than knowing that my child is walking in the truth.
