When I Worship

I know it has been a while since last post..... ( though I know there are some who is graciously checking my blog. Thank you if you are!! )

Worshiping God with praises and songs is one of my favorite time in my life.
Moreover, it is part of my life. ( I know it is not always the case for my lack of faith.)
I say it from my experience.
One of the things that got me to get serious with God is worship songs. As a Jr.High student, I just started learning English. I was wondering and interested in what the English song meant. I would sing a song at church, and memorized some words in the song and look up in dictionary!!
Coming to know those words brought me joy; God was teaching me what it is to worship Him.
(Of course I would sing in Japanese, my mother tong, as well, but somehow it looked plain to me.)

But, the more I learn about worship, worshiping at church, leading Jr.Highers Worship or being worshiper, the deeper I find how worshiping God is.

The frontman of Switchfoot, the popular Christian Rock-band, Jon Foreman said
"For me as a singer and songwriter, I am continually wrestling with the idea that if I'm going to sing it, I have to live it....... I want to be alive within the context of the words I'm singing. There's a tremendous amount of humility I take when I'm writing songs"
I think when we worship God, we need to remember this kind of sense.
My prayer for my own personal worship is just as Jon Foreman said, the words I sing will have reality in my life.

How about you?? How do you want your worship to be like?

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
Romans 12:1

  1. Worship is so amazing and powerful.
    I used to worship through dance, but eventually I had to stop because it was too time consuming. Now I try to really just worship HIM through all I do, so that others may see HIS work in my life.
    My blog - for example - is one way I worship HIM.
    Even reading the Bible, I feel SO close to HIM, it's powerful and amazing!

    "Let me be known as a man with no aim but that of a burning desire for Thee..."
