Lesson in Worship...

Yesterday, I was watching a Hillsong Video of a new song they are about to release. If you know anything about Hillsong, you know they are extravagant worshipers and their congregation is always expressing themselves outwardly.

I left the video of their song on, and I left the room.

When I came back in, I saw this...

Whatcha doing Lexi?

Lexi: Watching the moogzik.
Mom: Oh yeah?
Lexi: Why do they put their arms up in the air like that Mommy?
Mom: Because that is the way that people can tell Jesus they love's like they are trying to reach out to him...trying to be closer to him.

And she sat right up and did this....

Mom: (in tears)
Lexi: I think we should go see him now.
Mom: Who?
Lexi: God. I think we should go up in the clouds and see God. I want to see his face. And Mommy.... when we are done, could he drop us back off at our house?

May we all have childlike faith...and be so free in our worship.
