If you hang around the things of God long enough, you will witness these pure moments of joy. 😊 These moments lift your spirit and help you finish the race strong. The race that God has set before you. (Hebrews 12:1)This happen to me this morning while substituting in 3rd & 4th grade Sunday school.
Before we begin class a sweet dear friend of mine that is not only ahead of me in years but also in spiritual maturity comes and sings older songs and hymns with the 1-4 graders. She also throws in other fun things like, singing the books of the bible. I am so glad she didn’t call on me to sing the books of the bible. 😉 She does this with such love and enthusiasm, no wonder it is a time in which my 8 year old son does not want to miss.
I witnessed these kiddos and myself singing and believing the words to, I am a Promise and It’s Bubbling in my Soul and I myself could not wait to race home and Google these songs:
I am a Promise
I am a promise
I am a possibility
I am a promise with a capital “P”
I am a great big bundle of potentiality
And I am learnin’ to hear God’s voice
And I am tryin’ to make the right choice
I am a promise to be anything God wants me to be.
It’s Bubbling in my Soul
It’s bubbling, It’s bubbling,
It’s bubbling in my soul.
There’s singing, and laughing,
Since Jesus made me whole.
Folks don’t understand it, Nor can I keep it quiet
It’s bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling,
Bubbling, day and night.
What powerful and encouraging words for us today!
Just a few nuggets of truth that I took away from substituting today:
~ I am a promise to be anything God wants me to be! 😊
~ It is so good for my soul to hang out with the younger generation and the older generation. The younger generation increases my faith by being fearless and pure and the older generation increases my faith with wisdom and experience.
~ Never stop hanging around the things of God. Maybe teaching children’s Sunday school is not your calling but I encourage you to hang around the different ministries in your church and watch God do only the work He can do. It’s a beautiful thing to watch. ❤️
~ I thank God for these treasured people that pour into my kids lives. You are making a difference!
And all this leads me to end with, it’s bubbling, it’s bubbling, it’s bubbling in my soul. There’s singing and laughing since Jesus made me whole!!!
