Door of No Words

A child sits, legs crossed, behind the rustle of her peers,
aware there is no one but her.
They, and she are gathered in a room
by the window in her house.
Her chin rests on the knuckles of her fists.
A stranger stands and begins.

A tapestry is woven before their eyes,
of Words she has heard many times. Of Words
she hears for the first time. The Spirit reveals
the consequences for all mankind, and
the fault lay not only with her.
And the messenger continues to speak.

With perfect strokes the Spirit weaves pure threads
of red and gold, into Redemptionís story;
the promise of rescue and Glory. Clear eyes are opened.
Jesus is standing at the door of her heart,
knocking Ö gently. She does not want to wait!
And the lady asks them to raise their hands.

Moments are passing! The Spirit hovers Ö ready!
His stillness speaks no words.
Jesus is knocking Ė now! She cannot wait
and she opens the door of her heart. Jesus enters,
and turns to shut the door; her 6 yr. old soul is sealed.
Then her Mom tells everyone itís time for snacks.

And Jesus goes with her Ö and never leaves.

This is really neat how you described a child's invitation to Christ coming into her heart. I can really relate as I accepted Christ when I was 4. There is something special about a child who asks Christ into their life at an early age. We too have a similiar Bible program, my daughter has attended, that is held weekly and it's called Bible Club. The teacher is so wonderful and has been teaching this awesome program in the area for close to 25 yrs. So many children and families have been reached through this. God bless you and your family and writing. You are gifted.
