We had a night totally focused on worshiping our God this past Saturday. I was totally blown away by how God moved in individuals. Standing on stage as I looked into the crowd of people, I was overwhelmed watching people worship. Even more so, as I scanned the room, I witnessed my youngest son, all of 10 years old completely focused on worship. His eyes closed, his arms stretched out, singing his face off. I have never seen him do that before. And in an instant, I was overcome with emotion. Thankfulness, gratitude, humility, & joy. My boy, worshipping the true and living God with reckless abandon.
My thoughts quickly went to how God must feel when he sees his children worship Him in truth. I think I caught a glimpse of it. I think I felt just a little bit of what He must experience when the people He gave His life for, give Him the praise and adoration He so deserves. If you're a parent, you must know what it is like when your child looks at you with admiring eyes and gives you tender and loving embraces. Well I really think that is exactly what God feels when we give Him our all in worship and by how we live our lives devoted to Him.
