When I think back on the earliest memories of my walk with the Lord, one of the clear memories in my mind is one of praise. I remember singing songs of praise to Jesus when my dad was drying my hair one evening when I could not have been more than four years old. Praising Jesus came naturally and has remained a strong theme for my life.
As we drove on holiday recently, the noise of the cars and traffic were suddenly drowned out by our sweet girl starting to sing. Her little voice sounds so beautiful to me, even though I can recognize that she seems to have my lack of tune and rhythm.
Her words are even more beautiful. As we sat listening to her sing, we could hear her singing about how wonderful Jesus is. Praise just comes naturally to her as she praises the big God who has made everything and who knows everything.
My prayer for her is that she will never stop singing and that I will never stop listening and being reminded to praise God with faith like a child.
Matthew 18 vs 3
“And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
