Reality

It keeps hitting me over and over during my reading of the Word or each book I read, that everything we do should be grounded in worship. How can we make all we do worship God? Some days it can be hard to get out of bed in a good mood, never mind in an attitude of worship and praise. I know that it should not matter how we feel, and that it is based on a heart attitude. Our heart is made to be towards God. When we do stuff that is against God, it hurts our heart. We feel the tug of knowing we have done wrong. Maybe that is our conscience working, telling us that we have moved in the wrong direction and we need to turn round, repent, and walk back in the right direction?

It seems to be some sort of stigma within the Church in general to feel that we are in a bad place with God, and that we feel far away from Him. We are pushed all the time to make it look like life is great, we are Ok and that nothing is wrong in our lives. I wish that was the case. Most of us do not feel that way, and are crying out for a change that will place us where we want and need to be. There are many Sundays that we go to our services and just want to cry, but have to put on a happy face and make it look like all is good. Why can’t we go into our church family and tell it how it really is? I hope there are churches out there that the members feel they can be open and totally honest like that. I know there will be, and pray they keep being family, and an attitude of openess and honesty.

I love my church family, and love the fact that any of us can be open with other. I thank God for where He placed us as a family, and know He has blessed us mightily. I pray He blesses all of you mightily and that you accept His love with an open accepting heart.
