THE AIR I BREATHE

Worship is more than singing on Sunday morning. While that’s part of it, worship is the essence of what makes us truly human. God sparked this desire within our hearts from the day He first breathed life into Adam and Eve. Since then, every single human who has walked this planet has participated in this God-given ability, and divine quest.  True freedom comes when worship flows through us as naturally as the air we breathe, when the words and actions in our lives resonate with our Creator so deeply that every inhalation is full of meaning.  In The Air I Breathe, Louie Giglio explains in passionate prose what it means to truly live a life of worship, offering insight and guidance for finding our personal path towards connecting with the God of the Universe.

I truly enjoyed this book.  As being part of a worship team, I felt this will help me 100% to be a better worshipper.  Louie Giglio explained worship in easy to understand terms.  This book was laid out to make it easy to read.  The further I got along in the book, the more I realized I have a lot of work to do.  My worship needs to be 100% on God.

Sacrifice of Praise

27 03 2013

Let us offer the sacrifice of praise unto God CONTINUALLY! 

Continually means all the time.  Yes, there are times that you just plain don’t feel like it.  But it doesn’t go by feelings.  We praise Him because of Who He is and what He has done for us.  What better reason than that?  Yes, I know the devil, our adversary, tries to have us go by our feelings.  “I just don’t feel like it right now”…even though you are in the worship service at church.  Everyone else is doing it, but you don’t feel like it.  The cares of your life weigh upon you.  That’s where the sacrifice of praise comes in.  And you know…God seems to cherish those moments more than when you feel like it.  You are sacrificing to thank Him for Who He is.  He loves it!  And when you do, be ready to be showered in love…His Love. 

So, my challenge to you today, is to sacrifice praise unto God.  Try it! 





Longing

19 02 2013

As the deer pants, so my heart pants after You, O Lord.  This is my prayer today.  Let’s pant after His heart today.  He is most worthy.  Give Him the praise that is due His name.  Take time out for Him.  He took time out to die for you.  Won’t you just thank Him for that today?





Rest

16 02 2013

Be still and know that I am God.  What a statement.  Rest.  Complete rest in Who God really is and that He will take care of you…no matter what is going on in your life.  Sickness, finances, whatever!  He loves you.  Realize this today and lean on Him.





Be still

14 02 2013

Be still and know I am God.  You know, sometimes God has a sense of humor and finds a way for you to be still and know Him.  Like today having a snowstorm.  You know, He just founds a way where I could bask in His presence and enjoy His beauty.  So, I can’t go anywhere today.  So what?  Everything will be waiting for me tomorrow.  Today, so I can just enjoy His day He has given me and enjoy His rest.   Have a nice day!





PRAISE

12 02 2013

LET EVERYTHING THAT HAS BREATH PRAISE THE LORD.  I HAVE BREATH.  I CHOOSE THIS DAY TO PRAISE THE LORD…NO MATTER WHAT MAY COME MY WAY.  I CHOOSE TO PRAISE HIM BECAUSE HE IS WORTHY OF PRAISE.  HE DIED FOR ME!  IT WAS EXCRUCIATING.  THE WORST KIND OF DEATH THERE IS.  HE DIED FOR ME!  HE DIED FOR YOU!  PRAISE HIM FOR ALL HE HAS DONE FOR YOU!!!





Blessings

Today, let’s make an effort to bless the Lord.  He blesses us abundantly, but do we bless Him?  Let’s give him a blessing today.  How, do you say.  Praise Him.  Help someone in need.
