Light of The World....

"Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'” ~Matthew 19:14

The week of Vacation Bible School never ceases to amaze me. 
There is a rare, powerful, tear-stained, genuine worship that occurs, akin to nothing I've seen out of adults. 

Their worship was pure and heartfelt....with no distraction or concern of anyone around them. 
What was going on was a song and a conversation between each child there and their God.

While I was worried about getting "too in to it" at one point....I realized the quietest kids I knew were in front of 400 people "letting it rip" 

A few things overheard this week....
"We are giving money because, there are sad thirsty elephants in Africa that need it."

"God loved the world so much- 
that He decided to stay the same yesterday, today and forever" 
(messy 3rd grade handwriting Scripture looks better than any scroll found in Israel) 
"I growed a mustache here."

"favorite song is, My God is an awesome guy. He Reigns from heaven above. 
My God is an awesome guy." 
The particular singer also sings, 
"Mary had a little man. a little Man, a little man. He followed her home from school one day." 
"God sent bananas from the sky to feed desert people."
Kids took it upon themselves to help crying little ones. 
They giggled and skipped and didn't get their feathers ruffled by differences.
They had honest conversations with God....
They truly were and are, the light of the world and a city on a hill.

God, Thank You for giving us visual examples of what You desire. No wonder the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.

In His Dust,
