We listen to the local Christian Music station on the radio. I occasionally listen to pop/alternative music, but knowing that my children are listening really affects what I listen to. Those little ears in the back of the van are always listening and they are so impressionable. Zoe asks the name of every song lately, and it’s fun when she says, I know this song mommy and she starts singing along or in the middle of the day she’ll start singing a song about love.
My son has just started following in her footsteps. I heard him singing one of the Christian Songs we listen to on the radio. It’s adorable hearing these powerful words coming from their lips. I’m moved through my children.
Jesus teaches about love all throughout the bible and that’s why so much of Christian music is about love. In Steven Curtis Chapman’s new CD Re Creation we are reminded that God is alive in us and can be present in every aspect of our lives. For children, at least for my kids loving God in every aspect of their lives is so easy. I often wish I had the simple view of life that my children do. Our children are little walking witnesses. They love to talk about God, they pray openly, and love everyone.
I wish I had the faith of my children.
Our children are so much apart of everything we do now. I was watching the video I embedded above listening to Steven Curtis Chapman talking about his new album Re Creation and how God is moving him in his life. He is reminded that his daughter that died is going to be apart of his future and he should focus on that instead of how she was apart of his past. He really feels that God is moving his life and he was inspired to re-create some of the songs of his past. I feel it’s like he’s moving forward, looking to the future, and moving ahead. I’m quite moved by his devotion to God and quite thankful for his wonderful music. If it wasn’t for artist like him we wouldn’t have a Christian radio station.
I received a copy of the digital soundtrack and was compensated for my time. My opinions are my own.
