Can I be honest, and tell you that I do not know what I’m about to write? I am not worthy to instruct you on anything I have not mastered- and I haven’t mastered anything- so there is nothing to say except… Except that I’m attempting to adopt a life of worship even though it’s hard with a crazy schedule. Except that I’m relearning that the friends that stick aren’t the popular ones, but the ones that will acknowledge your presence no matter who is in the room. Except that people find it amusing when you’re childlike, even though wonder is a beautiful gift to posses.
But, you see, I haven’t mastered any of these, (not even close) and so there is nothing to say. Life worship is difficult, no smash that, impossible. Living to glorify God defies the very essence of human nature. I can’t do it without Him. The lonely are quick to acknowledge the supposedly popular who acknowledge them. It’s hard living in the two spheres, and not fitting into either one. And child likeness is good, but can be taken too far. The wonder of appreciating old things with new eyes is not always highly thought of in sophisticated society.
These are some of the lessons I’ve been toiling over with life worship being the hardest one. I can’t permeate the world with His love as an act of worship unless my love tank is full. My love tank can’t be full unless I’ve spent time in His presence. Time-it’s a valuable commodity to be spent. But I had better spend it correctly. That’s another lesson. What lessons are you actively ingraining in your heart? How is God working to teach you? Our journeys may be walked out alone, but we are not meant to be isolated. Let’s share together in the learning.
