That Feeling…

on November 3, 2014

The first Sunday of every month, our church calls Worship Sunday. It’s where our kids stay with us for the worship portion of church. I love this. It gives our kids a sense of what worship (with music) is like.

Today was Worship Sunday. And for me, it was one I’ll never forget.

My son, Elijah, stood in front of me for all 3 songs.
You see, he is my snuggler. He is 8 years old and still never flinches to hold my hand. In parking lots, down the hall at school, and today at church. Standing in front of me, he held my hands around his neck the whole time. Well, actually not the whole time. He started off clapping, but I think he quickly got frustrated because he couldn’t get the beat (definitely got the rhythm genes from me). So, he held my hands. He held my hands so tightly to his chest that I could distinctly feel his heartbeat the whole time.

It wasn’t until the second song, that I felt it. I could feel Elijah worshipping God.

Let me explain. Since he was standing in front of me, I couldn’t hear him singing. The only thing I could feel was the vibrations of his voice on his chest, and his sweet heartbeat acting like the metronome…keeping beat for him.

As hard as I am trying to explain it, it was almost an indescribable feeling that came over me. I have felt the presence of God during worship before. You know, that peace that just comes into the room? But today it was different…

I could feel the presence of The Lord...through my son. His son.

If we just open our eyes, open our hearts, and allow God to enter…it is then we will feel Him. Even when we don’t know it…He is there.

He is here. He is all around us. He is the whisper in our ear. The nudge at our back.

That’s Him.

The amazing feeling I had today. Remembering that He is in our kids…we just need to help them to allow Him to make a home there…in their hearts.
All you have to do, is look into the eyes of your child…or any child…and that’s HIM.

    Kadie, This is such a touching story. Thank you! I truly enjoyed it and I know if we just let the Spirit move in us we can certainly know it is there!! What Church do you go to?
