Here I am to Worship

Got some news today.

So I ran two miles.

I run when I'm stressed.

Running refocuses me.

Running resets my mind similar to the way a spanking rests a child's heart and mind. I guess it would be fitting to say those two miles kicked my rear.

I haven't run in almost a year. Mostly due to being pregnant.

Tonight was good. I needed it. I needed refocusing.

I turned on my ipod and let it play whatever came up. It was on a playlist I created titled: "Worship." I was glad. I needed to worship. That is what I needed to focus on.

God used song after song to speak to me.

"Here I am to Worship," the one you are listening to right now if your volume is turned up, was one God used.

I'd never thought about it the way I did tonight.

"Here I am to worship." Usually when I sing this song I am in a worship service. So I am literally standing there, in a church, TO worship.

So what I'm doing is telling everyone, "Here I am, to worship."

Tonight I heard the song differently. Tonight I heard it:

"HERE. I am to worship."

Right here.

On this track.

In Abilene.

As a mother, as a wife, as a daughter, as a cook, as a cleaner, as a whatever, I AM TO WORSHIP.

God doesn't tell us to go to church or go to special events, or to be with certain people to worship. He tells us: here.

Wherever you are, here, you are to worship.

And by his grace, I did.
