I AM a PROMISE!
This morning I kept a friends kids while she was at an appointment. Luke suggested that we have a "dance party" or you may call it a jammin' worship session. At all of our "dance parties" the room has to be totally rearranged to make way for an appropriate "stage" to worship on and this of course was no exception to the rule. Veggie Tales Worship was the music of choice and we totally rocked out. All 4 kids took turns on the microphone, on the guitar, on the stage and for those of you that go to church with us....Luke convinced the two little guys to take turns being "Pastor Marty" and sit in a chair on the side of the stage (hilarious). We sang and danced our way through all the songs on the cd. Worn out by the last song, I sat and pondered the lyrics......
I am a promise. I am a possibility. I am a promise with a capital "P". I am great big bundle of potentiality. And I am learning to hear God's voice and I am trying to make the right choices I will promise to be anything He wants me to be. I can go anywhere that He wants me to go. I can be anything that He wants me to be.
I love it. I want my kids to know that they are a promise. I love that at 18months and 3.5 years they truly are learning to hear God's voice and trying to make the right choices. I long to see them go exactly where God wants them to go and to be exactly what they were created to be. My eyes fill with tears as I pray for them to be men who chase after the heart of God with everything that they are. There is so much potential held within these tiny adorable boys. As I contemplate I find myself begging the Lord to guide me. I am overwhelmed by the responsibility of stewarding these boys and of training them in the ways of the Lord. I so desperately want to portray the beauty of the Lord to them in an appropriate light. What a delicate job we have as parents. The encouraging part to me is that God's ways work. So, if we apply the principles that we study in His Word....then we will succeed at this amazing task!! I cannot wait to see everything that God wants Luke and Ben to be....but I am sure loving watching and helping them to learn to hear His voice and try to make the right choices! In fact, they are helping me learn to hear His voice and inspire me to try to make the right choices. AAAAhhhhh. What promises they really are!!!
