I had a different post planned for today, but Princess trumped it with this story:
Princess: Yes, this voice in me wants me to sing and to praise God no matter what anyone else says because people need to know about God.
Me: That's called the Holy Spirit
Princess: Well it's just something that I feel called to do. God doesn't talk in my head like I can't hear him or anything but I know in my heart that I am just supposed to sing. God is calling me to sing and I just want to sing for Him and to sing about Him so that other people can know about Him. (Yes, she really talks in run-on sentences like that)
Me: That's great darlin'. So your gonna sing in the talent show?
Princess: I don't know. I know I should obey what God wants me to do and I feel called to sing for Him and not worry about what everyone thinks about it because I have to make Him happy, you know?
So many times the Holy Spirit tells me what He wants me to do but I let my fears get in the way. It amazes me that at 7 years old, Princess is starting that discernment process and trying to sift through what she feels is God's calling on her life. I am so glad that God is using my kids to teach me more about Him every day.
