Logan's favorite song says, "God forgives us when we do wrong, Oh, oh...so we'll forgive each other too." His other favorite is about how Jesus was tempted in the desert, how he remembered what the Bible said & how we can use God's word to "chase that devil away" when we're tempted too. Wow! How awesome!
I have a couple favorites too:
"Pray, God's people. Nothings too small to say. Pray, God's people. Spend time with God today. He'll listen to you." Prayer was the theme for the week. And my #1 favorite...
"I want to clap my hands, stomp my feet, pound on a drum, swing from a tree...I am so free 'cause the Father loves me." I LOVE this song. I loved watching the kids do the motions (especially 'swing from a tree-act like monkeys). It reminded me daily (during camp week) of how excited I should be that I am free through Jesus. Don't get me wrong. I am so excited that I have eternal freedom through my Savior. BUT how often do I show it? Is the joy, peace & happiness only God can give...is it written on my face? Then I got to thinking, "when was the last time I got overly excited about anything?" Tony would say I'm an emotional person. But come on, what girl isn't from time to time :) I get pretty excited about cupcakes (but that's another story for another time).
Well, camp week came & went. And like most camp weeks, it was a great time. But also, like most camp weeks, the excitement faded...life took over again...and so it goes. Then Logan asked to play "his cd" this week while we were running errands. Boy, I'm so glad he did!
As I listen to the words of this little cd, I am not only reminded of God's promises, or of how much He loves me, or even to lift all things up to Him in daily prayer. I am most reminded to come to Him as a child-pure in heart, with wild abandon, unbridled excitement-ready to jump into my Father's lap.
This cd is staying the car for a long time!
