Worship Loud

“The Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord is on His heavenly throne.   He observes the sons of men; His eyes examine them.”  Psalm 11:4 (NIV)

Morning sun rose, knees hit the floor and shower beckons me.  Dressed, lunch packed and my stuff gathers on the barstool.  Gym bag ready and the aroma of breakfast cooked by my honey leads me to the kitchen. It’s just another day as a smile and kiss greet my morning.  Clock ticks away, tv hums news in the backdrop and then we break bread – God’s Word.  Savored, chewed and digested before the world invades our space.  Covered by my husband’s prayer, we bow heads before feet go out the door.

Amazing the difference – when hearts are turned toward and lifted up before agendas steal us away.  Humbling the effect – when breaking bread and fervent prayers quiet angry words or frustrated souls.  Challenging to say the least – when cherishing the best takes precedence over all the rest. Incredible the feeling – when doors open and shut knowing love covers all.  Wonder if God smiles when morning worships loud before the rush begins?

Traffic whirls, people drift  –  same places and routines serenaded by tunes.  Just another day unfolding. Maneuvering between lanes, I remember His Words – to love my neighbors.  I reflect on His Words – to keep a tight rein on my tongue.  I pull into my parking spot and step out my car; I remember prayers to glorify Him in all I say, all I do – words my husband spoke over me.

Don’t have to wonder if God smiles when we worship loud. I know He does, because loving God with all our heart, soul and mind propels us to keep Him first before the rest of our world rushes in.

“Father, let the world hear You in me, let the world see You in me and most of all let the world want You because they know You live in me.”

 

For His Glory
