It's All Worship


When I think of worship the song, Here I Am To Worship, comes to mind. Here is a taste of the lyrics.

          Here I am worship, Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that you're my God.
          You're altogether worthy, altogether lovely
Altogether wonderful to me.... 
And I'll never know, how much it cost 
to see my sin upon that cross 


I'm struggling to count it all as worship here lately. This move to Texas has really taken it out of me. The loneliness and not really having a "place" is getting to me.

When I sing songs like Here I Am To Worship it lifts my spirits and makes me feel hopeful that more-better is to come. He has been good to me...always.  And even in this transition and with each day feeling monotonous, I know in my soul this too shall pass.

I will count every moment with my family as worship.
Every load of laundry, every dish washed,
toilet scrubbed and meal cooked.

I will worship and sing because when I count my blessing and see how much I have to be thankful for worship overflows and joy abounds. Light shines in the dark.

STOP.


It's been a LONG time since I've joined Lisa Jo and the others for 5 minute Friday, but here I go again. Maybe this will be a start to a weekly thing. If you don't know what I'm talking about join me here.

  3. You could always join us on Facebook. All of us. Then you can share with us all about what you are thinking about and all that is happening to you. Don't feel lonely. I've been lonely before when I bowled. So very. But I got up and went out and met so many people all over the world and found out all about them and I just bonded all over the world. '
    Life is different now. The internet is a very happy and connected place and before you know it, you could connect to people who really need you to connect to them.
    Then, time just flies by.
    Years, go by.
    And you've made new friendships that you've never before thought you could have made.
    And
    You we can sing and worship together and enjoy our lives together as one in Christ JESUS.

    The LORD can listen to our hearts together as one in Christ.

  4. Haha- I thought of that song as well! :-) I can relate to what you said today...I've lived in Colorado for six years now and still struggle with feeling like I have a "place." Many prayers for you as you adjust to life in Texas! May your heart feel settled and at peace soon.
