We can fall into the trap of leaving out worship when our emotions are in the gutter, when in fact this is the time to worship even more! I’m speaking from experience. Faith rises when I choose to worship, thoughts shift, emotions follow and the joy of my salvation is restored. (Psalm 51:12)
“We can act ourselves into a new way of feeling much quicker than we can feel ourselves into a new way of acting. Worship is an act that develops feelings for God, not a feeling for God that is expressed in an act of worship. When we obey the command to praise God in worship, our deep, essential need to be in relationship with God is nurtured.“ ~ Eugene Peterson
How do you best enter into worship? Is it in silence in creation? With your eyes shut or open? In song? In prayer? Pencil to paper? All the above? Nurture God’s design in you. Make the choice to worship.
Lord, assist us to worship You way before we feel like it, and often. Amen & Alleluia.
