I stand to my feet. I look up to Heaven and close my eyes. It comes over me in waves.
This is why I pulled myself out of bed this morning. Why I showered and blow dried my hair and wore unsupportive cutesy shoes instead of my tennis shoes.
I hear the sounds of the instruments, voices lifted in praise. I make the songs my prayer as the worries of the world both rush upon me and fall away, knowing that I am in YOUR Hands, safe. Bills, difficult family, temper tantrums, dirty dishes, crumbly floors, love handles, baby fat that’s been on my hips for more than five years. Safe in the Hand of the Father, I let those worries come to me and then disappear as I press into Him.
Hungry, I come to You.
Thirsty, I come to You.
I fall into the arms of Jesus and know the true meaning of worship.
Linking up to Five Minute Friday!
