We signed my boys up to play soccer for the first time this month. A few weeks ago they had their first game. I really wasn’t sure what to expect, they began very timid and slowly. After a few times down the field they began to understand the way everything was organized. After that the training wheels came off and they began having a blast running around, taking the ball and even scoring goals all on their own. After each goal either by their team on the other team they would both find their way back to where I was and look at me for validations. They wanted to see my reaction; they wanted to receive a high five from dad.
Our walks with Christ are much of the same way. We al begin walking with Christ slowly and timidly. Once we find our first few steps we begin having a fun time and we continue to look for our Heavenly Father to be proud of us.
Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is in your midst a mighty one who will save he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. (ESV)
