Getting Real About Life, about Love, and about God

Worship day 2

I decided that I would try something this week. Music helps me worship and connect to God, so, I am going to try to use some worship music to help me think about what it means to worship God.
Could it be possible that I can learn about true worship from music designed for worship?
Let's just see about that.

The song yesterday talked about how worship is something that we do with our lives-- that our lives are a song of praise to God.

Today, I want to share a song that is called, "The Heart of Worship." It speaks to me about what worship is all about and who worship is all about. It also speaks to me about how worship is more than singing, or being in church. True worship is about our hearts, because that is what God is looking at.

Here are the lyrics:

When the music fades
All is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that's of worth
That will bless Your heart

I'll bring You more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what You have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You're looking into my heart

Chorus:
I'm coming back to the heart of worship
And it's all about You,
It's all about You, Jesus
I'm sorry, Lord, for the thing I've made it
When it's all about You,
It's all about You, Jesus

King of endless worth
No one could express
How much You deserve
Though I'm weak and poor
All I have is Yours
Every single breath

I'll bring You more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what You have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You're looking into my heart

Chorus:

Here is a video if you want to download and hear the song.


Any thoughts?

Worship today!

In Christ's love and mine,
Doug

I love to worship thru praise music. Your statement "it is more than singing or being in church". This is exactly what I was trying to say a week or so ago. I sometimes feel like we are just "mouthing the words" when we sing at church. Some of the music in the hymnals are hard for me to "connect" in a praise way. My cousins family goes to a church in Blue Springs with a praise band, in fact his son plays guitar in the band, and man do they worship thru praise music. Please send good praise music my way so I can download it.
