Anyway, I meant to save this in the drafts but it posted, ha. Here we are doing worship at a church last month. I thought it would be great to have my family on stage with me.
Usually, after I lead worship, I head to the children's ministry and watch my kiddos, so that my husband can hear the message. (my kids don't like to be alone in class yet) So, today as I was waiting for my husband's cue to come up for the last song, I had a vision of the entire family on stage together. So, I told my kiddos, "when daddy comes to get me, let's surprise him and have him play the cajon on stage." The kiddos were all for it. So when Daddy came to get me, We grabbed him and headed to the stage. Thankfully, he was ready to do it and he got up there and lead the beat. My daughter took a picture of it, and the rest of the gang just hung out. There is something so wonderful and beautiful when a family worships together. No, we all might not all have the opportunity to do it on stage, but to worship together in the home is a special place designed for wonderful praise to be raised.
(I will insert a picture as soon as I can upload it)
Well, this week, it was the kiddos turn to shine. I've been just meditating on the song that Jesus Culture sings, "There is Power in the name of Jesus....to break every chain", so this week before we started to worship, I had my girly girl read the names of God to the congregation and then sang that song. There truly is power in the NAME of JESUS, and boy did that add such sweetness to the worship set.
Then at the end, for a grand finale, I had all the kids come up to sing the last part of "Oceans" by Hillsong. The Congregation loved the little ones, and they did great. (I did have to bribe one of them with a donut, so that he would sing the song seriously and not rock it out like a scream band.lol)
In the end, It all worked out well.
Worship Together, try it. Even if it's just with a CD in the background, I think you will see there is special bond that takes place in the home. Who knows maybe you will discover some hidden talents and actually foster worship leaders in your home.
Go on Give it a try.
