As we were listening to it, she said, "We need Guitar." Along with the piano. I was waiting for her to say we needed the drums, too. She wants a band. I laugh about it, and I am so glad that she is so willing to sing. However, it reminds me that I need to also keep reminding her the reason she is singing is to Worship God, not to perform to the congregation. A reminder that I must also give myself often.
This morning I read in a devotional, "Are you worshipping with your lips or with your life?" I used to think that Worship was the songs we sang at the beginning of a church service. I realize now, worship is so much bigger than that. Worship is the attitude I have when I get out of bed in the morning. Worship is the words that I use when I am speaking to my husband and my kids. Worship is the time I take to praise God for all of the little things He does in my life. Worship is my life.
Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth. Psalm 96:9
I am joining Emily over at Chatting At the Sky today for Tuesday's Unwrapped. Today I am unwrapping the gift of worship. I pray that today and always I will remember to worship God with my life and not just in the songs I sing.
