One night, while my husband worked from home, we watched in amazement as our young child taught us a lesson in worshiping the Lord.
My husband had created a makeshift workstation on our living room table. He had many reports to complete. Meanwhile, I busied myself by doing light household chores in the kitchen. Our six-year-old son kept us entertained by listening to worship music. Although we were all in the same room, we seemed to be distracted by our own tasks. Out of respect for the late work night his father faced, our son put headphones on as he listened to his favorite new song that streamed through the computer.
After awhile, I noticed that our son was listening to the same song repeatedly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9La_4svq8JI&ob=av3n
Then suddenly, he lifted his sweet little arms in adoration as he sang from the top of his lungs, "Surrounded by Your Glory what will my heart feel...mmmm...JESUS...mmmm…be still." Within a moment, our living room had gone from dead silence to a loud and glorious noise. Maybe it was because we were caught off guard, that my husband and I began to giggle. Or perhaps, we were simply feeling a moment of prideful parenting.
My husband reached for his cell phone to videotape our son. From the corner of our son’s eye he noticed that his father was filming him. I thought he would stop singing, but instead, he pulled the headphones from the speaker, smiled and turned the volume up full blast. Now the song played so that we all could hear. Our son continued singing. All the while my husband and I listened intently to the words of the song. What unimaginable joy I had discovered.“The Lord, saved my heart, my life and my marriage. I can only imagine what it will be like when I am surrounded by His glory one day with Him, in Heaven above!”
Thank you for reading about my walk with Christ today. I pray that the Lord blesses you through whatever you are experiencing.
In Christ, Donna
