The Heart of Worship

Worship is and has become an important part of my life, it’s not just something that I do every now and then, but is a lifestyle. One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Psalm 34:1 because it says “I will praise the Lord at all time”, whether you are feeling down, sad, happy we have to praise him at all times. 

Songs don’t just have beautiful sounds, have you stopped to meditate on what are you actually singing? For example: “God, I’m on my knees again. God, I’m begging please again, I need You. Oh, I need You. Walking down these desert roads. Water for my thirsty soul, I need You. Oh, I need You.” Is a song that we sing on Sundays but it is more than just a song, it is saying how much we are in need of Jesus. 

God wants to be authentic and to worship him with all of our hearts. Sometimes life is hard and we feel we are not good enough to praise him when we sin or make a mistake. Crowder wrote a song that helps us trust God when we are in trouble times. “So lay down your burdens. Lay down your shame. All who are broken. Lift up your face. Oh wanderer come home. You’re not too far. So lay down your hurt. Lay down your heart. Come as you are”

Songs help us praise God even at times when we can no longer keep going. Songs are so much more than good sounds or a good rhythm. Songs can help us praise God through their lyrics. Would you bring more than a song or will you bring your heart to God? You don’t need to wait until Sunday morning to worship; you can do it right now.
