Something to think about

Recently someone told me they appreciated my smile while I worship. My smile was an encouragement to them and their comment was an encouragement to me!  It sparked several thoughts about worship in my own heart that I would like to share.

Worship is proclaiming the “worth-ship” of God.  No matter what, God is worth it!  No matter your situation in life, the circumstances you face, the defeat, the victory, the heartache, or the blessings – He is worth it!  If we proclaim Christ as our Lord, we serve One who is greater than all of that!  How can we not praise our Creator, our redeemer, our peace, our comfort, our greatest example for living!  HE IS WORTH IT!!

Worship is so much more than music.  We often think of worship as music and singing.  Singing can certainly be an expression of worship, but our entire lives can be a demonstration of worship to our Lord.  I encourage you to make worship a way of life.  Worship God in the way you sing, but also in the way you give, the way you love and the way you serve others.  

Worship is an encounter with the Most High.  If you’re like me, music truly speaks to your soul.  But worship?  Worship is so much more!  Worship is an encounter with the Most High.  Worship requires action.  We must surrender our own agenda and actively enter in to His sweet, loving presence.  Don’t think of worship as a time of singing.  Rather, our time of singing is your opportunity to be embraced by God!  

Worship is an outpouring of what’s on the inside.  What’s in your worship tank?  When a smile, or passion, or love, or joy are shining through on the outside, it’s because a smile, passion, love or joy are dwelling on the inside. If your “worship tank” has become stagnant, hints of a bitter flavor, has an unpleasant aroma, or is completely empty, do not ignore it!  Find a way to connect with God to refuel your soul.  Meditate on scriptures. Listen to praise & worship music regularly throughout the day.  Spend time in prayer.  Saturate yourself with the things of God. He will refill your tank with fresh, new, Living Water!  As stated in James 4:8, “Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.”
