Worship

Meg

"Ascribe to Yahweh the glory due His name; worship Yahweh in the splendor of His holiness" (Psalm 29:2, HCSB)

"Worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness; tremble before Him, all the earth" (Psalm 96:9, HCSB)

"Let us go to His dwelling place; let us worship at His footstool" (Psalm 132:7, HCSB).

"Six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany where Lazarus was, the one Jesus had raised from the dead. So they gave a dinner for Him there; Martha was serving them, and Lazarus was one of those reclining at the table with Him. Then Mary took a pound of fragrant oil—pure and expensive nard—anointed Jesus’ feet, and wiped His feet with her hair. So the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil" (John 12:1-3, HCSB).


How do you worship?

I find that life is extremely busy, as of late. It's rare for me to have a day that we don't leave the house for some reason. Our days are filled with couponing (our newest hobby!), play groups, coffee dates, a book study/Bible study, workouts, bread baking and house cleaning. Little E usually takes a two hour nap in the afternoon, but even that is a battle some days. Her nap time is usually my time to get things done around the house, serf the internet, or take a nap myself. I'm truly tired by the end of the day! I love our busy life, but I usually don't have much time for myself. And that time I have, I don't always spend wisely.

At one point, I remember being extremely overwhelmed about life. I don't remember who spoke to me, but someone wise pointed out that worship is a matter of living. We don't have to beat ourselves up about the time we do or don't spend with Jesus each day. Sometimes I think that life of a nun sounds quite marvelous, they can spend all day worshipping God, without outside restraints. But that is not my life. God has blessed me with this beautiful family, so, I believe it's my job to worship Him with what I have. Worshipping Him with the moments. Giving thanks for the picture perfect scenery I wake up to, early morning devotional times with a cup of coffee in hand, a cuddly little girl who loves to read books, this is my life. I do my best to start each day right, so that I can worship God with each day I've been given. The words I speak, the thoughts i put in my head, the music I sing, all of it brings glory to God (I hope!).

In the book of John, Mary anoints Jesus' feet with oil. She then wipes His feet with her hair. It's such a beautiful sign of adoration. She truly loves her Savior, and is demonstrating it to Him in a feasible way. She's worshipping Him with her life. Yes, some would ridicule her for the act, but she really didn't care. All that mattered was her worshipping Jesus. I want that to be my attitude as well. I truly want to live each day, worshipping Christ, and not caring what the rest of the world thinks. I want to anoint His feat each day. Submit to His plan, His way. Live my life for Him.

What does worship look like to you?
