He Washes Over Me — 11 Comments

  1. Thanks for this reminder to make sure that we are in the right posture to meet with Him … I liked this, “Yes, He was there to meet me, but was my heart postured in such a way to meet Him?”  And thanks for visiting me at Pursuing Heart, and for the encouraging words you left there.

  2. I think we all have done the same thing.  Rushed to get to church, snapped at a few people on the way — then try to worship.  What a wonderful post as always!

    Love and hugs to you!

  3. I can hardly bear to miss a Sunday worship… but sometimes, yes, I’m disappointed because my health does keep me home. When I have to miss worship, my week just isn’t the same. But I try to stay in close with the Lord even though I missed the formal praise time on Sunday.

    Thank you for sharing your heart with us, Barbie! ♥

  4. Thanks for sharing this. 🙂 I too love to worship and feel very close to God when I do so even if I start off with a not so good attitude. :s

    My best time of worship was when I had a set of flags in my hands and the Spirit freed me and I danced and danced and knelt and cried and then danced and danced for God. It was such a time of freedom and total submission to God, not caring what anyone else thought only that I was totally on fire for God and worshiping Him in the way He created me to.


    • I use to head up a dance ministry.  I remember those times when I would dance before the Lord.  His presence was so sweet.  I loved the freedom He brought to me in that season.  Thank you for sharing!

  5. This sounds just like my Sunday morning that just past! It was when I finally poured my heart out to him asking for forgiveness, that He jumped in with an outpouring of His Spirit to fill my cup to overflowing! Beautiful post, Barbie!

  6. Barbie,  I can relate as I have been there in worship too.  God is looking for a humbled heart, not just the appearance of humility.  I don’t want to go through the motions, but truly draw near to Him because then He will draw near to me. 

  7. Barbie, this is a great story. I too have lived this moment… you could have been telling my story! I suppose any mom and any woman in ministry can relate to these moments… and the need to let go and ask for forgiveness. It’s such a sweet moment when that forgiveness washes over us and we experience such communion with God!

    Thank you, too, for stopping by my blog!
