I am a Friend of God....WOW!
As I sit here checking up on the ladies'...and "my Guy's" blogs, I hear this little yet powerful and very sincere voice in the background.
In her room listening to her new CD, is Jianna Belting out for all she is worth...."I AM A FRIEND OF GOD..."
As she rewinds and sings it over and over, it really begins to register...
I can see the smile, and maybe a tear, (not unlike the one that comes to my own eye), of my Heavenly Father. As my heart swells to hear her sing her praises so confidently; I know His heart is swelling to have her sing so unashamedly to Him.
I love to hear her worship, it takes me to a place of awe at the fact that she is so confident at 5 years old in her love for God, and His for her.
From this place of Awe, I find myself joining her in worship within my own heart...
I AM A FRIEND OF GOD....HE CALLS ME FRIEND!!!!
He does...He LOVES me...He LOVES my children...He LOVES that they LOVE Him...He calls us all friend!!
As I think about how He must be feeling over Jianna's praise to Him....I hear a whisper...
"Jen....My heart swells equally at your praise to me...."
That whisper stops me...that's true isn't it? You love my praises too...as much as Jianna's....
Simple truth...POWERFUL TRUTH!!!
We are both His daughters....we are all His daughters...and He inhabits our praises...He lives in and for our praises!
