Worship changes everything.
I have found lately that I am beginning my prayers with worship. As it should be, but hasn’t always been. When I begin my prayer by acknowledging God’s holiness and sovereignty, suddenly my life gets into focus. My problems are in focus. I can see them for what they truly are. Circumstances God is allowing. Circumstances He is bringing. Circumstances He is using to make me into who He wants me to be.
Worship changes the prayers that follow. I am more in tune with God’s will. Desiring God’s will, even when it’s hard.
And worship changes me. It makes me want to follow harder after God. Remembering all that He is and all that He does leaves me in awe of Him. Today all I can see is how He is taking my ashes and redeeming them into something more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.
Worship makes me want to live every moment for Him. To do His will. To be His hands and feet. To shine His light everywhere I go.
where you go, I’ll go
where you stay, I’ll stay
when you move, I’ll move
I will follow you
who you love, I’ll love
how you serve, I’ll serve
if this life I lose, I will follow you
Worship changes my heart.
