Baby Christian

April 28, 2010

Life is completely different with a newborn.  Holy crap! is about all I can say to adequately describe how I feel.

One very cool thing about having a brand new little baby girl is the amount of praise given out in my home.  Everything she does is amazing, and never sisyphean.  Every time McKenna lifts her head up, hoots and hollers go off!  Every time she burps, I yell “that’s my girl!”  Every time she passes some gas, I praise her by telling her she takes after her mom (hahaha–I’m in trouble for this one :))

So now I am asking the question “is this how God feels about brand new Christians?”

Is God cheering every little thing a new believer does?  Each good decision?  Each attempt to pray?  Each time they go to church?  If they read the Bible 2 times in a month, is God yelling at the top of His lungs, “THAT’S MY BOY!” 

An even bigger question…”Does God ever stop cheering for His kids?”  Even now, after growing substantially in my faith I can sometimes feel God cheering.

Greatest feeling in the world–when we fall down, pick ourselves back up and God is right there with a “THAT’S MY BOY!”

Sisyphean–after a king in Greek Mythology who was cursed to push huge bolder to the top of a hill, only to watch it roll back down and had to repeat this forever…so you can prolly guess what it means, endlessly fruitless.
