Bringing Down the House
As a teacher and/or adult, I know of few things that make me happier or prouder than seeing a kid step into their talent and having the world finally recognize them. When I taught drama, standing ovations were mandatory. I wanted every child to experience that. Because they are good, they are worthy, and they deserved it. And they have the rest of their lives to hear or believe otherwise.
Check out this kid from Britain's Got Talent. I dare you to keep a dry eye.
Wasn't that fabulous? Truly anointed.
That kid's life was just changed–even if no record contract follows. On that stage he was no longer the kid who got bullied, the kid who was fat.
Still the kid who was different. And thank God for it.
Though it's easy to think otherwise, I believe this is how God sees us. He's that proud. That in love with who we are and what we're capable of. He's laughing and clapping and giving us a standing O.
Because you are good. And you are worthy.
