WORSHIP

The lifestyle of worship makes the

ordinary extraordinary, the mundane

majestic and the simple wondrous. It

can be felt in the cracked and

creviced hand of a great grandmother

caressing and praying for the tiny and

tender hand of her future, wrapped in

blankets of hope & heritage, love &

legacy. It can be heard in the last

moments of a life lingering to repent

for words that have hurt or repeat

words that have healed, seeking the

place of grace that rights all wrongs

and where self-importance is replaced

with selflessness. Worship can be seen

through the eyes of the blind that are

full of marvel at his kindness and

mercy, who can see Him in colors that

are unimaginable, whose sight is set

upon Him and whose visions are not of

this world. The sweet aroma of

worship wafts into the busy-ness of

our lives reminding us to bow our

heads, our hearts and our will to Him.

Worship is tasted through the daily

ingestion of His word, satiating

unnamed hungers and changing us from

the inside out. Worship envelops all

around and encamps within, saturating

all that it comes into contact with.

It is the substance from which praise

is birthed, thanksgiving flows and

truth emerges. Worship sings and

worship dances. Worship walks and

worship runs. Worship stands and

worship bows. Worship hold itís head

high in times of adversity and lowers

itís head with humility extending

undeserved graciousness. It delights

in right and reproaches wrong with

unashamed boldness Worship, the

uninhibited devotion of hearts who

have encountered Love in itís purest

form and who have been transformed

Worship is the compass that directs

our paths to heaven. Worship incites

every thing on earth encoded with His

DNA to cry out in utter admiration to

the most High, the Creator who made

everything out of nothing, and

someoneís out of no ones. Worship,

the universal language of the body of

Christ, surpassing all racial and

denominational boundaries and uniting

in holy harmony the innate desire of

all creation to worship the Lord.

Come; let us worship the Lord with

intentional purpose and on purpose

each moment of our day.

Since the topic this week is Walk...I naturally read your piece with that in mind. I found worship, but nothing about walking. However, nice thoughts about worship. Thank you.
