All the way to church this morning, the girls sang praises to Jesus at top volume in the backseat.
"Come on, come on now -- we've got a new song! Come on, come on now -- a song of liberty! Let the world hear Heaven's melody...this is the shout of the hearts You've set free!"
Clapping, dancing in their seats, and singing their hearts out...I don't know when I last experienced something so beautiful.
"So I'll dance, dance, dance in Your freedom! Oh! Your glorious freedom! Forevermore...forevermore!"
I love how this song just pours out of them, so heartfelt and true to their joy in Jesus. No hang-ups, insecurities, doubts, or disillusionments. Their faith so far is just spontaneous, joyful trust and celebration.
No wonder Jesus said we must become like little children to enter the kingdom of Heaven! It is amazing to find myself learning from my children, wanting to trust Him like they do. What a gift!
"Joy, joy, unspeakable joy! Hope like never before. You came for us, You are our freedom!"
