Simple Honesty: Part 4


It was bound to come up sooner or later. No use putting it off anymore. I set out on a walk to talk with God about worship. Why is this a sticky subject for me? Maybe because I’m not quite sure I like doing it the way I’ve always done it before.

I used to be a great worshipper. On Sunday mornings I was one of the loudest voices in the pews, if I wasn’t singing up front. Now, what can I say? I’m starting to think differently about worship.

What is worship exactly? Worship is praising God with your life. No matter what you do, it’s making God the center of it. That encompasses so much more than just Sunday morning singing. It takes in all of life. Our lives are made to worship God. And we do that every day of our lives.

Now instead of trying to squeeze in worship, I try to live every moment of my life for Him. In making Him precious in the moment, we give Him worship and glory.

Lifestyle worship is, for me, has been so freeing. Instead of trying to perform for Sunday morning services, I am free to be honest to God about how I feel. Now I worship Him in all I do. Sometimes that is hard. Sometimes I get tried. But I find that when I am not trying to perform, when I am free to worship all the time, I find that praise and worship flow more freely from my life.
