As a Worship Leader, I've learned my job is to 1. Worship my Savior; and then 2. through my worship, create an environment of Worship for others, inviting the Holy Spirit to surround us all as we pour out our hearts and cry out to Him who created us. If I don't have Joy, will anyone else? If I don't show Hope, will anyone else feel hope? My face reflects my heart when I lead others. ...And as I prepare my heart and voice for another busy weekend of Christmas programs / parties, I can't help but be so excited...because this is my job: TO PRAISE JESUS WITH EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE IN ME! TO WORSHIP HIS HOLY NAME! TO PRAISE HIM FOR WHAT HE'S DONE IN MY LIFE - WHAT HE HAS SAVED ME FROM...and the Blessings He continues to pour over my family.
"Who am I, oh God, that I should have the honor to Worship You in the midst of my messed-up life? ...But that you would even acknowledge me, and embrace me as I come to you...."
CHRIST TRULY IS ALIVE as we celebrate this season of His birth!
HAVE HOPE! FIND JOY! And ENJOY YOUR WORSHIP during these next few weeks as we Celebrate our humble little King. :)
