"Just Come Into My Heart"

1465409502_2f3e582d601Shelby sent me a wonderful letter after our Vacation Bible School this year...

Dear Pastor Mike,

Thank you for the great vacation bible school. I learned a lot about Moses, Jeremiah, Joseph and Joshua. I like being there, playing and making things. But we're really there because of Jesus and God. So I was thinking last night after the story we should end it with a prayer. And we did our usual thing: "Now you lay me down to sleep. I pray dear Lord my soul to keep. If I die before I wake I pray dear Lord my soul to take. In Jesus name. Amen.

And I said "Dear Lord just come into our hearts. And be with us." This letter is to show that I really enjoyed vacation bible school and how proud I was to be there. From the fun to the closing ceremonies. I love being around other kids. I just wanted you to know that you're a great pastor. And I'll keep praying. But I know that God is already in my heart and He just keeps knocking every time I go to church. It just reminds me of how blessed I am to have you guys and a great family and friends I have. Whenever I'm sad, I pray to God, I say, "just come into my heart" and He promises me, God always keeps his promises and He does.

Thank You,

Shelby Corey

It is letters like this that make me love being a pastor! I have to confess that our VBS was pulled off by a ton of great volunteers! They deserve a huge high-five for all that occurred at Harvest that week.
