An Expression of Worship

So what have I been doing while waiting for my book to be ready?

I have had to read my manuscript several times lately as part of going through the edit process. I thought I would grow tired of reading what I have written over and over like when you say a word over and over and it stops sounding like the word. I was afraid what I wrote would stop sounding like what I wrote.

But the opposite happened. I saw something I hadn’t seen before. How worshipful my book is. The last chapter is focused on worship intentionally yet I found throughout that what I have written in the faith chapter, the love chapter, the trials chapter, in the drawing near chapter and the relationship chapter, all of it is an expression of worship.

All of it is declaring how great and amazing our God is as we learn to trust Him more, as we learn to give Him our cares, as we learn to sit quietly with Him and get to know Him more intimately than before.

When I put all of these thoughts together, I wrote the sentence in the graphic above in my journal. Then I decided I liked the sentiment enough to give it breathing room beyond my journal. I chose to share it with the world.

After all, isn’t He worthy of all our praise? 

Psalm 29:2
Give unto the LORD the glory due to His name;
Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
