{worship}: five minute friday

I’m learning that in order to really shine, then my life — minute to minute — must be about worship. Worship is a lifeline to the Lord. Worship is about loving more and counting gratitudes and living for something beyond the comfort of earth. 
Worship is a response to the love of a great big God. This response comes in many different forms. Sometimes it’s staying up late to read scripture and sometimes it’s going to bed early to be rested. Worship is speaking out and staying silent. Worship is loud music and soft prayers. Worship can be a smile and it can be tears.
It doesn’t matter what it looks like, but rather worship is a genuine response to the love of a Savior.
Five Minute Friday

This summer, I came across a writing challenge hosted by Lisa-Jo Baker that I thought I’d give a try.For more information, check out this link to Five Minute Friday. The nitty-gritty is you write for 5 minutes on a word, then you share your post, and you comment on another. I hope you’ll join too.

  1. Wow…our God is good! And worthy to be worshipped! Love that the bond of Jesus is bigger than anything else. 🙂

    Love the word genuine!

  2. HI Ruth,
    My name is Sarah and I posted behind you on Five Minute Friday which means I am lucky enough to discover your blog today!

    I love what you wrote about worship. And I love that this was the topic today because it is refreshing to see that there are so many of us trying to make worship an ongoing part of our lives. I agree that it is a lifeline to the Lord. I am trying to learn more and more to make my genuine response of worship to God in the area of friendships and how I treat everyone I come into contact with everyday.

    I am so glad that I got to “meet” you through your blog:) Thanks so much for sharing your heart!
