There's just something incredibly powerful about worship music. It speaks to the deepest part of me. I feel so alive and in tune with God when I praise Him. It opens my heart, but doesn't stop there. It becomes so much easier to open that part of me that nobody on this earth sees. Working its way through the torn, missing pieces of every broken piece of me, it begins mending and bringing to my attention places in my heart I didn't even know existed. It cleanses me, and makes me weaker and stronger all at the same time. It's the most beautiful connection with my Savior. When I sing, I feel so close to Him - like He's only a whisper away. I can literally feel His presence and His comfort that washes away all the sadness, unforgiveness, guilt, and bitterness.
When we worship in Chapel sometimes I see a hope for a revolution beginning. I know that's what God intends for this place, but we have to be the ones to make it happen. I can see a revolution that brings all people together, nobody better than another, to worship the Lord, and change the world together. If I want to live up to that, it's time I start acting out on it. It's time I start taking time for those that so desperately need it. It's time I start putting my whole heart into everything I do, so I know I gave everything the Lord gave me to bless others. And it's time I become who He wants me to be. I don't want to put this off any longer. It's time for me to step out in faith, in courage, and to actually trust God completely. Let it be your time too! We musn't wait any longer. Today could even be our last day. I sure don't want my last day to come, and me not have given absolutely everything I can to Christ. I pray we can all set our differences aside, and see how alike we all really are, and be the Christians God intended for us to be. I believe. :)
Whoa, so my tangent started with worship. You can see how it really inspires me to do God's will:) I believe it really lets us express our love and adoration to our Savior and at the same time, praising the Lord with our hearts lifted high adds immense power to Scripture and prayer. Praising Him with music seems to do what words cannot, and captures the heart of me. So I encourage you to take that step with me, out in faith, and see the glorious life God has for us. Nothing on this entire earth will compare! :)
I've been listening to "Salvation is Here" by Hillsong United. It's up on the list with my favorite worship songs because after all is said and done, I really do know my God will save the day. He gives me incredible comfort when the world throws me curves, and the love He gives me day in and day out is simply astonishing. Thanks to Him, I do know It's Gonna Be ALRIGHT! :)
