"Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, it there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy meditate on these things." Phil 4:8

I will follow

About a week ago, I was listening to my 5 year old as he was building a train track in the play room.  I was trying to make out the words of what he was saying and here is what I heard:

Where you go I go
Where you stay I stay
Where you move I move
I will follow
Where you go I go
Where you serve I serve
I will follow

At first I didn't know what he was singing and then my 12 year old told me he thought it was from the CD's in the car.  Sure enough it was Chris Tomlin's song I will follow.  While the words weren't exact, it was so precious to hear him singing those words.  I told the Lord that I pray that will be the way of his life, that he will follow You.

Yesterday, as we were out running errands, I turned the song on and he and I were singing it really loud over and over in the car.  It was such a "delight" to see his face beaming, and hear his voice singing those words "I will follow" repeatedly.

I love that, Denise! It's so precious when we see our kids' hearts seem to be trusting in Jesus.

I once heard you reflect on Jesse singing Open the Eyes of My Heart in a store and having a man interested in what Jesse was doing. God gave you and James Jesse and David because you're the perfect parents to raise them to love Him. I'm so thankful for these moments that show your influence is sinking in and that serve as an encouragement to your heart as a small return on your diligence in training your boys to have Christ in the center of their lives.

I love hearing my son singing, too.

Welcome to the crew!
