Worship & Stuff.

There is only so much that can be said in a Facebook status update.

So I have turned here. To think "out loud" if you will. To write my thoughts. To think it out.

And yet I still don't know exactly what to say. But here's what I know. I am passionate about worship. I get paid to be a worship leader, but sometimes I feel like I do a LOUSY job at the prep work. I know I have been guilty of taken it lightly. And yet my job is to help lead people to give them a glimpse of His try to guide their thoughts and their journey for a few minutes each week. This my friends, is not something to be taken lightly.

And God kinda hit me over the head with that this week.

It's resulted in not sleeping. A lot of praying. A lot of searching.

I want for our church to grow as worshipers, but before I can help other people grow, I have to be committed to the journey myself. So this week, I have recommitted. My minds is spinning at 100 mph. I am so in love with God and I want others to be too.

I want God to stretch me. Refine me. Teach me. Mold me. I want that for everybody else too...but especially my church family. I am praying for a revolution in our church. For a harvest. One that will reach our into our community and into our world. I don't think that is too much to ask...because God is a BIG God who can DO big things...once we submit to Him and allow HIM to work through us.

Oh how I so desperately want God to work through me...and often times in spite of me.

So for those of you who read this blog who are members of my church family...I hope you will join me on this journey. Pray for our church...for our leaders...for our growth. Pray that we will be a worshiping church and God's love will overflow from our lives, from our church, and into our world.

May God give us a glimpse of His glory that will force us to our knees in worship....and may it never be taken lightly again.

I love this whole post. And although I am not a worship leader at our church, I do lead our children's church...and I have the same feelings and thoughts.
