“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come
With all creation I sing praise to the King of kings
You are my everything, and I will adore You”
Twas awesome to be at church today =] Pastor Joel Holm, one of my favs preached today. but the very thing that made me think today was during worship. maybe its others too, but there is just something so homey about being in God’s presence and worshiping Him.
i remember when i was young and i wanted to stay with my mama rather than go to sunday school. i noticed people always lift their hands up, close their eyes and sing their hearts out. i wonder why they do that. i wonder why mama does that as well. sometimes she even cries. but she’s smiling. and i know her and papa had a fight just before we went to church. how can she smile? and why does she need to lift her hand? i don’t understand.
i thought about the above moment during worship today. now, i know. now i understand. i remember a lot of Pastors explained that lifting your hand is an act of surrender and an act of praising and worshiping God. its an expression. and the homey feeling? i believe its the same feeling as when mama was crying yet smiling. during worship, i feel at home. i feel comfortable. indeed, better is one day in His presence than thousand else where. i believe i was really made to worship. thou worship is not really for me, you see. its for God, only for Him. but the fact that i was there, i know that in His presence is were my heart will always belong.
and i can’t wait for heaven. imagine, that’s all we’re going to do their. exciting! =D
