Lesley, what a comfort to remember that God doesn’t judge our worship by our feelings! Spending time with Him is sure to affect our feelings, though, as you’ve pointed out by noting that so many of the psalms begin in anguish but end in praise. I was encouraged by this deep dive into authentic worship!

Thank you for the quote from William Temple. Worthy of memorization and a refrigerator magnet!

Lesley,
I love the Matt Redman quote — Amen! This also jumped off the page to me as the definition of worship: “the most selfless emotion of which our nature is capable.”
Such great truth in the post!
Blessings,
Bev xx

Read His Words Before Ours!
I’m always startled, then delighted, when I drop by to see you here, Lesley. This should always be our theme when we write or communicate.

Thanks for drawing me closer to the One who is all wisdom and creativity yet again, friend …

I love the quote from William Temple. I am going to save it. Thank you for sharing. Yes, God does ask us to “walk our talk” regarding worship. It should be part of everything we do, not just empty words and gestures we think about once a week.

Leslie, I love that you mention worship is more than simply singing. Our entire life is to be an act of worship – authentically, intentionally, and wholly.

I love that you brought out that worship is more than singing. It’s too bad we have a tendency to limit worship to that time, when worship should infuse everything we do as unto the Lord.
