“So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. So I will bless you as long as I live; I will lift up my hands and call on your name.” -Psalm 63:2-4. (at Fuller Theological Seminary Library)
A worship service is not primarily about what we receive from God, but what we give to God. What fuels our worship is not an emptiness that we come seeking to have filled, but a fullness that cannot contain itself and must be expressed.
David Rohrer, in “Gratitude is the Stem Cell of Worship”
Something I’ve learned as a new 26-year-old: I can’t do this alone.
Phil Wickham’s “Grace” is a good reminder: “I need eyes to be my guide. I need a voice that’s louder than mine. I need hope I need You cause I can’t do this alone.”
I cry every time I listen to this song. It’s a sobering reminder that I’m broken and I can’t fix myself. No amount of superglue can fix me or put me together again. It’s only through God and His grace that I’m alive.
