J:Mommy, I don't want to go to bed alone in my room. I'll be alone. I'll be scared.
Me: No, you won't. You're safe here in this house with me. I'm here. Your safe.
Then everything changed when a small voice spoke to me in my heart.
Me: J, you know that God is a good guy, right? Well, there is a bad guy named Satan and when you tell me that you are going to be scared I know that Satan is fighting with you. Satan is fighting with you, but God is bigger and stronger than Satan and wants to beat him up. God keeps you safe.
J: Oh. . .
Reluctantly, he turns and heads towards bed. I hold him for a while to help him know he is safe and I love him. Gently, I tuck him in bed. After a moment of quiet he asks, "Mommy, is God winning?"
Yes, my son, indeed He is winning. He has already won!
