I try to start my day off reading... I know that if I don't do it first thing when I get up it will not get done... well, today while reading in Isaiah these verses spoke to me about worship… I know God was talking to Israel, but I could see how this applied to me today & how willing I am to give my all to God in worship:
Isaiah 43:22-24 - "But you didn't pay a bit of attention to me, Jacob. You so quickly tired of me, Israel.You wouldn't even bring sheep for offerings in worship. You couldn't be bothered with sacrifices.It wasn't that I asked that much from you. I didn't expect expensive presents.But you didn't even do the minimum— so stingy with me, so closefisted.Yet you haven't been stingy with your sins. You've been plenty generous with them—and I'm fed up. (The Message)
Where it talks about “not being stingy with your sins”, how true is that? Doesn’t God deserve better than that from me??? I am learning to let go in worship & just bless God with surrendering to Him through my worship.
I know to some of you this may sound weird, but giving everything to God has made such a difference in my life. I am so thankful for that! How about you... what are your thoughts on this?
Ok, enough "sermon" for today... I have lots to do today... my list is made & I still need to check off a few tasks today... I would really like to scratch off everything on my list today! Hopefully, later today I will be able to post my cards I am doing for a swap!
Having a sunny day & the energy to accomplish what is set before me today is why I have a grateFUL HEART, carin
