I was driving home from running some errands with my 20-month-old, Jacob. We had had a good time out and one of my favorite worship songs came on, Revelation Song. I turned the radio up and was just singing and driving.
After several minutes, I noticed that Jacob was clapping. I turned around and smiled and then raised my hand and waved it back and forth in worship. I looked back again and Jacob had his hand raised. He was doing what I was modeling!
Tears came to my eyes (driving and crying is not recommended!). Here is my son, doing what I'm doing. Joy filled my heart.
I wonder if tears come to God's eyes when we do what He wants us to do? If I find delight in my child worshiping, how much more delight does God find in us when we worship?
I love it when my Jacob helps me understand my relationship with my God on another level. It is kind of cool to be taught things about God by a 20-month-old!
(I know the picture is not of Jacob worshipping, but I couldn't drive and play photographer!)
