Taking your breath away

I was a baby Christian the first time I played bongo drums. They asked me to play for a children’s choir that was singing The Little Drummer Boy.  I prayed that I would play well and please him.

We got to the “then He smiled at me – me and my drum” – and He did. It took my breath away. Literally. I was stunned.

I’m sure I prayed about pleasing Him and the whole group prayed before the song. 

But a smile never occurred to me. His pleasure really reaching me never occurred to me before. It was always a someday future thing.

This new year I want to encourage you to be aware. That’s all. 

Be aware of Him. Be aware of His working. Be aware of His pleasure. 

It just might take your breath away!
