ASK LISA – WALL WITH GOD

My nine-year-old does not feel comfortable doing these soaking activities. Over time, I hope he will.

My nine-year-old does not feel comfortable doing these soaking activities. Over time, I hope he will.

If a 9-year-old is not comfortable gathering as a family and listening to worship music, I would want to know why. Is he feeling a religious spirit? Is he feeling unsafe being vulnerable? Is he unsure how to experience God? Is he struggling with unrepentant sin? Is he overwhelmed and not knowing how to let God in? Does he feel pressure and expectations that he doesn’t know how to meet? A child’s response like this does not mean back off. It means to push through and see what is making him so uncomfortable.
