Of all the themes I’ve listed that I would like to visit once a month on my blog, the one that stands out as first is worship.
In all things, in all times, worship is integral.
Worship connects all parts of my life to one purpose in Christ.
When I write, I hope to write with faith.
When I live life fully with my family, I remember with gratitude the one who gifted my family to me.
When I worship at home, in Bible study, prayer, song, and quiet moments, I find peace.
When I think of my friends and family who are undergoing trials in their life, I pray for them and praise God for their hope in all circumstances.
When I undergo my own trials (pretty small ones lately), I give praise to God for giving me the strength and patience needed to walk through those trials and back into the fullness of life.
When I worship at church, I feel connected to the Lord and all the members of my church family and to the members of the whole Christian church around the world.
Worship makes me whole because the Lord fills up my emptiness with love and peace through His salvation.
Worship isn't just one day a week, but a way of life.
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade - kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time." 1 Peter 1:3-5
Added Later - Just discovered a blogfest that fits with today's theme:
and I've decided to join in. The current verse is:
A - "As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord." Joshua 24:15b
