When our first son Joel was born, my first thought when I heard him begin to cry was that he sounded like a baby lamb “bleating” for his mother. That sound caused my heart to soar into a moment of overwhelming elation. I was a Mother! And, “life” had cried out from the new being, birthed from my own body.
When our second son Timothy was born, I was even more aware than my first birth of the supernatural event taking place. I was being entrusted by God to raise up children to be “Voices of His Promise” on the earth.
After 33 years of Parenting and watching our two sons develop into strong leaders, husband and having children, I would like to share with you the gift of that “sound” or the “legacy” of a generational sound being passed down through three generations. The next part of this message will be, just that.
A few years ago I was preparing a podcast and our Grandson James-David who was seven years old at the time (he is 11 years old now and still has that perceptive heart, is a drummer and plays piano and sings) was listening to me edit the audio. His Daddy, (Joel) is a gifted musician and vocalist as well and has sung and played for this little boy since he was born.
When I had finished recording the message that I was preparing, I then asked little James if he would like to hear some music I had been working on for a potential new recording project I was starting to put together. I played the musical piece for him from my computer, where I had been working on it. When it finished, he said to me, “Grandma! That music sounds like God music. It made me feel so happy in my heart!”
Of course, it made me just burst inside of my own heart with great tenderness toward this perceptive child! Then, he told me that he would like to make a podcast too, just like I did! I asked him what would he want to say and to whom, if he “did a podcast”.
His words were, “Grandma. I want to speak to the people who are sad and feel alone and tell them God is there and He loves them.” And so… I let him tell me what he wanted to say, … And I recorded him speaking it, as the music that I wrote, played along with his message.
Little did I know, that God had timed the music and that little child’s heartfelt prayer to match in not only timing, but in melody and beauty. The music ended just as he did, and he sang out all on his own at the end, without any of my prompting. He had heard the music only twice.
I will not tell you much more…
…But rather let you hear for yourself, the “Heart cry” of a child, and the spontaneous expression of praise that came out of this moment. I have played it for a few other friends, and the presence of God fell upon them, and there was weeping and a stunned amazement at not only the impact of the message, but also the reality of;
“A little child shall lead them” type of truth hitting them right between the eyes! (And… into the very middle of their hearts.)
May the “Voice” of God speak to you and move you to worship as He ministers to you through this pure and simple child’s message and prayer. It is God’s gift to the weary, the lonely, and those who hunger for more of a simpler and holy life hidden in the Palm of His hand, saturated in His word.
Share it with you young children or those who are longing for a sweet and non-commercial moment of holy and pure worship.
“Their children will be mighty in the land. The generation of the upright will be blessed.” Psalm 112:2.
Perhaps you might know of someone who needs to hear the “Voice of God” speaking to them in innocence and pure Grace. Pass this on to them as a gift, from Heaven.
In His Shadow,
