Thinking Out Loud

A Sacrifice Of Praise

There is something moving about watching a person worship God in the midst of their pain. Maybe they have tears streaming down their face or they are kneeling or raising their hands during a song or prayer while their personal life is falling apart or their dreams aren’t coming to pass or they’ve just buried a loved one. That’s worship. At least to me it is. And I think why I am so moved when I see that sort of thing is because it’s easier to worship God when things are going great than when everything in your world isn’t. I personally can’t contain my adoration of my Heavenly Father when I sing the lyrics to this one song:
You make all things work together for my good.
I wouldn’t have chosen the path of life that got me to where I am today.  Who enjoys going through the pit of despair only to find out that there is more despair on it’s way? Not me. But, now I can honestly tell you from the bottom of my heart that God truly does work all things together for my good. Even adultery?  Even adultery. Just thinking out loud.
