There’s just something about that name

Every day at naptime and bedtime, the peanut has a real struggle going to sleep. She fights it and, to say the least, is not happy about it. So, we’ve created a routine that we turn the lights off, grab her baby and bankie (blanket) and cuddle up with her in the chair and sing praise and worship songs to her. It’s always just been a sweet time of worshipping God and thanking Him for the good things in our lives.

One of the songs I sing to her is There’s Just Something About That Name. An old song I learned many many moons ago when I was a little girl. For those who don’t know it, it goes, “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, There’s just something about that name. Master, Saviour, Jesus, like the fragrance after the rain. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, let all heaven and earth proclaim, Kings and kingdoms will all pass away, but there’s something about that name.”

Well the other day as I sat singing to her, she sweetly looked up at me and said, “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.” So, I started singing the song to her and you can not imagine how my heart melted when as I sang to her the words, “Master, Saviour, Jesus.” came out of that child’s mouth. I cry even now as I think of it.

Thank you Jesus, that you are already placing a love for you in my child’s heart. Thank you for answering and hearing our prayers. My own heart sings out to you, my wonderful Jesus!

    such a precious moment, amy. i simply love hearing elizabeth pray and talk about how she loves jesus…and singing about Him…it is amazing to see the tenderness of a child’s heart. i am amazed also at her capability to memorize Bible verses already…WOW…to be a 2 year old again!

    Oh, me too–I’ve sung this same song to my kids when they are sick or after a bad dream since they were born! It calms them right down!
