Saying ‘Thank You’

Thank the Lord because He is good.
His love continues forever.
Psalm 106:1

PB058013

Worship is when you are aware that what you’ve been given is far greater than what you can give. Worship is the awareness that if it were not for His touch, you’d still be hobbling and hurting, bitter and broken. Worship is the half-glazed expression on the parched face of a desert pilgrim as he discovers that the oasis is not a mirage.

Worship is the ‘thank you’ that refuses to be silent.

We have tried to make a science out of worship. We can’t do that. We can’t do that anymore than we can ‘sell love’ or ‘negotiate peace’.

Worship is the voluntary gratitude offered by the saved to the Savior, by the healed to the Healer, and by the delivered to the Deliverer.

  6. Agree with all and will also add that worship is a life. Not only something we do but also something we are.
