God, I pray that this post will be an encouragement and challenge to those who read and not a display of pride. It’s all for you, it’s not about me. Amen.
Can I tell you that worship has never been sweeter for me? I’ve always needed the praise and worship time. I love the message, but I definitely make it a priority not to miss the music part of service. The last couple of weeks, I’ve had to stop and write down some lyrics because I find myself so overwhelmed by them ~ like almost lifting my hands up (not that it’s bad to lift your hands, but I find worship a very private experience and do not want to draw attention to myself, and, since I sit on the front row the chances of that are increased; also, I’ve heard a lot of people tell me how distracting it is for them to see others waving their hands around, and I do not want to hinder someone else; finally, I can worship fine with my hands down because God knows my heart).
Even through the rise and fall
We will give it all to you, my God
I will give it all to you
Cause even when I weak you’re strong
I will give it all to you, my God.
Jesus, Savior, King of Nations
You have come to save.
We will praise you, now and forever
We were born to praise.
You have come to save
You have come to change
The world through us
But change us first!
A life that shouts and sings the greatness of our King
Take my life and let it be
All for You and for Your glory
Take my life and let it be yours

Glory to God Forever
