"I'm coming back to the heart of worship"... words that have been sung by many people in worship services all across this country, this continent, this whole world. What is the heart of worship? The next line in that song says "where it's all about You, it's all about You Jesus". Worship is honoring Him with the gifts He has given you. Sometimes I feel like I have used the gifts He has given me for my own purpose. I am guilty of taking the abilities and claiming them for myself, not by saying that I'm so good because I worked hard at it, but by NOT saying at every opportunity that this gift was given to my by God the Father. It's not what I said, it's what I didn't say. This is my prayer, "Lord God, I'm sorry for misusing the gifts You have given me. I pray You would take me out of the mud, cleanse me, and use me for YOUR purpose, not mine. Lead me, guide me, take me to a place where it's all about You, the Giver of all gifts. In Your name, Jesus. Amen." If you have a gift that you've been given, and you know you aren't using it to fully glorify the Giver of the gift, I very much hope you prayed that prayer with me. Let us all use the gifts we've been given, and give the credit where credit is due.
