It’s almost 60 degrees in January and I’m sitting beside my husband in our driveway watching five of our children explore the creek beside of our house. Our littlest one slumbers in the stroller where our neighborhood walk lulled her. The birds circle in the sky and the sun envelops us all in a much needed defrost.
I take a moment to worship, to really breath it in, it’s thankfulness, praise, and awe all wrapped in a package of worship.
This is what worship looks like many times in these days. Days that are filled with read-a-louds, checking over grammer work, changing diapers, calling out spelling words, helping new readers perfect their skills, putting together meals, and washing dishes.
For many years my idea of worship centered around a church service, the only reasonable place to worship God. But this daily worship that I know today, this is what gets you through the hard times. It also makes those church worship times that much sweeter. You can then sing “How Great Though Art” and mentally scan those times of daily worship and it brings it all together. You can hear those messages on love and grace, on mercy and forgiveness and remember that time just the other day…
By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. Hebrews 13:15
