Heart of Worship

Something that is very important to me is that I teach my children to be worshipers. It is my hearts desire that they learn to sing, play instruments and freely worship God from a young age.

Last night, I had one of those precious moments with them. We were watching Jason Upton's worship song, "Fly", where he was singing and an angel began to sing along with him and it was picked up on his microphone. I was telling the kids about angels and then Ethan and Sabrina began to improvise and play along (Ethan on guitar, Sabrina on violin) in worship with the song. Ellie was dancing around, singing "God is the best God and I love Him", etc. It was really beautiful... Then out of the blue, Jamie-Lynn, who is not quite 2 1/2, looked at me and said "Mommy, I belong to Jesus". It was amazing! I haven't talked to her along these lines so I know it was something revealed to her by the spirit.

Matthew 21:16 speaks of how children will see things and know things by the spirit: 15 But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" they were indignant 16 and said to Him, "Do You hear what these are saying?" And Jesus said to them, "Yes. Have you never read, 'Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise'?"

Praise God! He is moving in my family and moving in my heart...
