Another week has come and gone, Praise God for weekends.
I woke up one day earlier this week feeling very weak and unmotivated to work. All I wanted to do was sit at home and listen to music all day long. Nonetheless, I got my butt off the bed and dragged myself to work.
I was doing my usual thing at work, photocopying, walking around campus sweating up a river and all in all, not doing much. I walked into the library and a wave of music came rushing through from the computer lab upstairs. I didn’t think much of it, I thought it was another teacher playing music while the kids worked. A few minutes later, I made my way upstairs to visit a colleague… peeped into the computer lab and saw a class of six graders messing around. When I say messing around, I mean, they really were not doing anything. Some was on the floor, some were on the computers, some were standing in front of the air conditioner talking to each other, and one was even holding a basketball.
I decided to go in and check out what they were really up to, I walked in and the speakers were blasting “Mighty to Save” by Hillsong. I love that song! I asked the teacher what they were doing and to my surprise, they were just listening to worship songs.
As I stood there for the next fifteen minutes or so, I was amazed at the faith and the energy these six graders have for God. As they sang, danced, and laughed, it was as though they were constantly on a “spiritual high”. I didn’t talk to any of them, and watching and listening to them sing Praises to God was enough to give me buckets of energy for the rest of the day.
I walked out of the computer lab unsure of where that sudden rush of energy came from. I’m sure they had no idea their entertainment had given me such an impact, but that’s not important. What is important is, for the rest of the day, I was in awe of the powerfulness of God, in awe of these young Middle School students who want to dedicate their life to living for God.
