I’ve always loved music. It’s been a deep part of who I am since childhood. But over the past few years, I’ve developed a passion for more than just the music. It’s about what happens inside, what happens between us and our Creator God when we send love and adoration His way. Music is just a tool that can draw us to His throne. But the worship is what happens when we are at His feet.
So many times, we get wrapped up in the things we like or don’t like about the worship music at our churches. We worry over the things we like or don’t like about how that worship is being led. But what we really need to do is focus on our own hearts in worship. To focus on Jesus so much that no matter what else is on the stage… no matter what else is going on in the room… we come into His presence. It becomes a personal time when we feel like no one else is even there. In your personal worship time, it becomes just you and God.
This is the reason for Worship Wednesdays. Instead of limiting this blog hop to only posts sharing worship songs (which is what Tune-In Tuesday was), my heart is for all of us to come together and really share worship. To discuss the things that God is teaching us about what worship is… and what it isn’t. I invite you to come by and link up with us every Wednesday. I’m looking forward to the great conversations ahead.
For today, here’s an awesome song from Hillsong… my favorite lines in the chorus are: “You’re the reason that I live, the reason that I sing.” This is my heart for worship. May He be the only reason we sing.
