So it seems I am something of a children's songwriter.
At least my own kids seem to like my tunes.
Here's one Aly requests fairly often. It came out of me one day when she was telling me about a "bad dream"...
There's a monster in my room
and he's very very big
and he gets especially ugly
when I try to go to sleep
So I say "Get out! And go away!
I don't have any time for you-u-u"
And I say "Get out! And don't come back!
Jesus loves me
and that's a fact!"
So I sleep like a baby
Because Jesus loves me
I don't have to be afraid...
Funny how childrens songs can point right to the heart of an adult issue.
Singing this song with Aly reminds me of my own invincibility because of Jesus' life within me.
Go. Be invincible.
