Is Your Worship Shallow?

Return to Me, and I will Return to you.

Worship. What comes to mind when you hear the word worship? Does your mind go straight to the short time of singing on Sunday morning before the sermon? Or does something else come to mind? Do you think it’s possible during the course of an entire week for a Christian to worship God only during a few songs on Sunday morning? Is worship limited to  just the act of singing to God? No, it’s not. That would be shallow.

Waiting for God

How to stay sane and the answer to being productive in our waiting.

We’ve just embarked on a young adult small group and are very excited to see what God has in store for all of us. We’re beginning a study on the subject of waiting for God. Have you ever found yourself waiting for God? It can be a tough spot to be in. Especially if you’re the wrestling type. Or if you’re like me & you tend to want to fix things yourself. As if we can answer our own prayers, ha! How absurd! Trying to figure things out on our own. Going over and over again in our minds trying to figure out if this thing we’re waiting on is a “God thing” or a “me thing.” Driving yourself, and probably others, crazy. Whenever I’ve found myself having spent an embarrassing amount of time consumed with well, me-myself-&-I…it’s a bit startling. In fact, it’s enough to make me feel a little insane.  What’s the answer to actually being productive in our waiting? To staying sane? Continue reading “Waiting for God”

Pieces

{click here to hear this song}

I had some thoughts hastily typed out today about being a dreamer, but have decided to save it. Maybe tweak it some more & use it later, maybe not. We’ll see.

Has God ever called you do something and in the middle of that something did you doubt? Did you wonder if He would finish? Provide what’s needed to accomplish it? Did you question Him? Let me ask you a question. Why is it that we don’t believe God for the WHOLE promise?

If you choose not to listen to the song I’ve included above…below are the lyrics for you to read….let this song remind you of His Perfect Love.
{Thanks, Korleen, for reminding me of this song this morning! #goodstuff}
Unreserved, unrestrained
Your love is wild
Your love is wild for me
It isn’t shy, it’s unashamed
Your love is proud
To be seen with me

You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us

Uncontrolled, uncontained
Your love is a fire
Burning bright for me
It’s not just a spark
It’s not just a flame
Your love is a light
That all the world will see
All the world will see

You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us

Your love’s not fractured
It’s not a troubled mind
It isn’t anxious
It’s not the restless kind
Your love’s not passive
It’s never disengaged
It’s always present
It hangs on every word we say
Love keeps its promises
It keep its word
It honors what’s sacred
‘Cause its vows are good
Your love’s not broken
It’s not insecure
Your love’s not selfish
Your love is pure

You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us
