I think we live in a time where worship, reading the Bible, and praying have become stale or “old news,” but God doesn’t change! Sometimes we just need to come back to the basics of worship.
Worship has gotten me through my most difficult times. Worship opens the gates of Heaven and floods us with God’s peace, comfort, and blessings. Worship heals our heartache and comforts our tears.
When you experience pain so deep that you don’t have the words to speak, just turn to worship.
We will all experience heartache, betrayal, pain, and suffering in this world. People will hate us because we choose to follow Jesus. Worship will be our escape.
When I went through my divorce, I thought I wouldn’t make it but worship saved me. Sometimes I would just turn on Jesus-filled music and cry out to God.
Our season of waiting is never wasted. Choosing God over this world will always be worth it. Billy Graham said it best, “I have never known a man who received Christ and ever regretted it.”
The Holy Spirit will step in on our behalf for the Kingdom. Praising God has always had such a special purpose in which we feel His Presence in a way we can’t deny. There is something so beautiful about worshipping surrounded by our church family. But even if you don’t have one, you can do it alone right where you are. It is never too soon or too late to turn to Jesus. If your heart is still beating, God still has amazing plans for your life.
He died on the cross for you on your worst day. If you were the ONLY person in this world, He still would have completed the work on cavalry. He knew the mistakes you would make and He still chose you. He will always choose you.
If you don’t know where to start or if the pain is too great, turn on worship and just cry out to God. Be honest with Him because He already knows every thought that comes into your head. He already knows and He died for you just as you are. He wants your messy, broken heart. He knows He is the only thing that can put it back together and bring true healing.
You were made for such a time as this, my friend. It is never too late.
P.S. Did you know the stars actually sing for the Lord? I’ve attached a link to it for you. All creation and science points toward God being very real and present in his masterpiece. Check out Job 38 and Psalm 14. 🙂
Hannah Smith, author of the Moving Mountains blog, is a woman who feels she has experienced a lot of life in her 30 years.
At 19 years old, Hannah joined the Army. After moving around the country, getting a divorce and losing what seemed like everything, she landed back where God wanted her in Ohio, even though she fought the whole way. She is now in charge of the prayer team at her church and seeks the Lord with all she’s got.
Hannah is married and a RN, but works as a stay-at-home mom to her daughter, Isabella, and her son, Grayson.
She loves to hike, travel, drink coffee, and talk about Jesus. Hannah also has a heart to create a home and life in which she can be a safe place for the hurting and the broken.
To her readers, Hannah says, “I believe that God set every single one of you reading this apart, for such a time as this. It is my hope and prayer that God would use the words I say to change your life in a way you and I never thought possible!”
