Here I am to Worship...

Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God
You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me

These are the words to a song that touches my heart and soul everytime I hear them. They remind me to praise and worship God for all He has done for me. In Psalm 103 David reminds us to praise our Father God for forgiving us of ALL of our sins, for healing us of our diseases (Praise God for that one!), for redeeming us from death (I can check that one off my list too!), for crowning us with love and compassion, for filling our lives with good things, renewing our youth like the eagle's, and many more blessings for which we can set our eyes upon.

"Worship" in Hebrew literally means "to kneel" or "to bow down." Worshipping is an act or gesture of humbling oneself before a mighty authority (our Father God). The Lord simply desires that you worship him and that you praise Him; for He is truly wonderful and worthy of praise.

When it seems that your life's journey is too difficult and it seems there is nothing else you can do...remember to always count your blessings, read over David's list and remind yourself of what God has done for you! Do as Psalm 103:1 says, "Praise the LORD, I tell myself; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.

Take time today to ask God what "worship" looks like for you today. It could just be writing a note to someone you care about and letting them know how much they mean to you, or singing at the top of your lungs in your car to songs that exalt God (this would be me :)), and/or telling others about who Jesus is and what He did for you on the cross. Your Father God loves you very much! Honor Him by praising and worshipping Him.
