One of my favorite things to do is to listen to worship music. In fact, I am listening to it now as I type. I have discovered a new love through Pandora music. Song after song being sung by artists that are utilizing their God given gift to usher others into a heart of worship.
Years ago, I bought myself a guitar. My dad taught me a few chords on it and I really had the desire to become a wonderful guitarist someday. I even wrote a few songs with it while my heart was inspired to do so.
There was only one problem with this new love and passion of mine – I completely lacked rhythm. My desire to conquer and reach a new potential in this new hobby in my life quickly faded as the inspiration fizzled out of my life.
That doesn’t mean that I lost my love to listen and sing with others who have been able to reach the potential that I once longed for.
The ability to lead others in worship it a true GIFT!
I have the privilege to be married to the worship director of our church. ( I am one lucky girl)!
In some recent weeks, my husband has pulled out his guitar to sing for and with me in our living room. I get so excited when I see him pulling it out.
My heart and soul longs to worship our God. I want to understand someday how to do that without holding anything back.
I know that singing is just one form of worship that we can do. Our lives should always be lived in worship.
