It was a cold winter’s night and Josh was awake in his bed. To hear the wind floating on top of the water was so relaxing. Suddenly Josh heard the door to his room opening. It was his little sister. She was upset and quickly climbed into his bed, wiping her tears away. “What’s wrong?” asked Josh. She told him that the dark was scary and that she just couldn’t overcome her fear. Josh wanted to help her. He thought for a while what he should do. Then he had an idea. He folded his hands, bowed his head and began to pray: “Dear God, please help my sister not to be afraid of the dark that is crawling into her bed. In the name of the Father, the Holy Spirit and the Son, Amen.”
Josh went out of his bed and turned the light in his little sister’s room on. He heard a scarecrow crow. Then he went back to his room.
Josh quickly opened the door to his sister’s room. He climbed into his sister’s bed and she woke up. He asked her if she wasn’t afraid of the dark anymore. He closed the door and his sister wasn’t afraid anymore. Josh rushed into his room and thanked God that his sister was not scared anymore. He did not want to see her being sad and scared of the dark all the time.
In the morning his mum called him for breakfast. His little sister was already sitting at the table. She told Mum how Josh had prayed for her.
After breakfast Josh went to school. He enjoyed school but before school started he had drum lessons every morning. When the lesson was finished Josh quietly opened the classroom door and closed it again behind him. Everyone was smiling. He quietly took a seat next to a new person in class, Craig. Josh always loved to meet friendly people. Unfortunately Craig was not very well. He was very shy. But Josh wasn’t afraid of shy people. He thought that everybody would be shy about something.
The teacher was asking the class who Jesus was, why Jesus came to earth and why people would need Jesus. Josh raised his hand and the teacher asked him to answer the questions. So Josh said that Jesus came to earth to die for us and that we need him because we couldn’t do this on our own. The teacher said that this was an interesting answer. Josh smiled proudly and the teacher stared at him for a long time, until she said that it was fruit time. Everything was going to be so exciting.
Josh is still preaching and if you believe in Christ you will go to heaven and see Josh.
