Today I am joining Lisa-Jo and others for the 5 Minute Friday where we are given a word prompt and write for just 5 minutes simply for the joy of writing. No editing or backtracking necessary. No need to be perfect. Just words freely flowing from my heart to yours.
Worship is where I connect with God. It’s where I run when everything else is falling apart, or when I cannot see the direction to go. There is something about joining with the heavenly hosts in awe and wonder of our Lord that just stirs my heart and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside. I lift my hands. I dance. I paint. I kneel. Tears fall. All acts of worship before my King.
When I worship I see God. But what about those hours in my day when the music has stopped, or when I forget to stop and put my focus on Him. Do I still see Him? Do I see Him in the pile of dirty dishes left in the sink, or the mounds of laundry awaiting my attention? Do I see him in the argument between my kids, or my exhausted husband sitting on the couch? Do I see Him in the books that I read or the words that I write?
I must see God, in all that I do. For if I do not see Him, my heart will be lead astray to worry, fear, comparison, or overwhelm. Will I choose to see God, or the mess in front of me? Will I choose to lift my eyes up, or fall into despair? I want to see God in all that I do, not just in a good worship service, but in the messy parts of my life. After all, He doesn’t live in the place where I go to worship, but rather He lives in me.
