Before having my three sons, I don’t really remember meeting any boy who had an active, living, breathing faith.
I knew guys who went to church and performed a variety of religious sacraments
But it all seemed shallow
And I could relate
Because my spiritual practices were very superficial as well
Today, it’s my ministry-minded middle’s 19th birthday
And ladies, let me say he is a cutie (he also has a serious gfgf so he’s taken!)
My superbaby is a reader of unusual books, uses quotes from great Puritan leaders with wild abandon
And he prays fervently, thinks passionately and feels the strong call to be in ministry – I am in awe
What brings me to tears though is his heart for worship
Aaron is a man of imperfection just like the rest of us
But the purity of his surrender and dependence on Jesus
Sometimes I look at him with fascination
He has a faith that is unashamed
His devotion to living a holy and righteous life
Are evidence of his worship to the King
And that’s not something you typically see in a 19-year-old.
They often worship other things far less honorable…
Today I rejoice that the Lord has blessed me with this child who has a true heart of worship and a love for Christ.
