God tends to our every need even before we are aware it is a need. He breathes His strength into our very souls when we speak His name. He whispers hope into our hearts when uncertainty plagues our vision. This rhythm of seeking God and finding Him exactly where He said He would be is worship. It’s when our heartbeat becomes one with God and the beating of the two creates the music of praise.
When we sync ourselves with God, we experience a steady rhythm in our lives. When we invite this rhythm to be present, we feel a gratitude for the gifts that God has given us. Worship takes place when God is present in our ordinary, extraordinary, messy and beautiful. He provides the rhythm we need to stay in sync with Him and the rest of our lives.

For me, the rhythm of worship is found most easily when I take walks outside. The very act of walking is a time to unite my heartbeat with my footsteps. My breathing is a steady cadence of inhale and exhale. Everything seems to fall into place and just feels right. God never fails to meet me when I slow down. He loves when we draw closer to Him.
I am learning that the rhythm of worship takes place anytime we invite God to become part of our day. It can be drawing Him close in our quiet time, leaning into listen, quick prayers lifted up for others throughout the day or anytime we intentionally ask Him to be in the ordinary, mundane that we walk though daily. When we invite God to join the simple moments of our day, we choose to link arms with Him and this union creates peace. A sense of peace frees our hearts and souls to accept where we are and what we are doing at that particular time in our day. We are grateful for the blessing and we express our gratitude as an act of worship.

We most often think of worship as a time of singing our praise and thanks through music. It is one of my favorite ways of giving myself humbly to God. But I am realizing that worship is part of our everyday when we intentionally invite God to be present.
So whether we are singing with voices lifted to God or bowing down low to ask for God’s mercies, we are worshiping our amazing God.
So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open,
drinking in your strength and glory.
In your generous love I am really living at last!
My lips brim praises like fountains.
I bless you every time I take a breath;
My arms wave like banners of praise to you.
(Psalm 63:2-4 MSG)
