When I was 7 years old I was born again! Five years later, the Lord filled me with His Holy Spirit and called me out to serve in full time service in the ministry. My heart is missions and a longing to love people into God's Kingdom.
I love to teach God's Word, pray with people and write. 
Soon, we are hoping our Jesus opens amazing doors to walk into mission endeavors.

THE ESSENCE OF WORSHIP

I wrote this a few years back: simple message yet so very true!

THE ESSENCE OF WORSHIP

6.21.07
FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT THROUGH HIS DAUGHTER DANEILLE SNOWDEN

     Somehow, we have lost the essence of worship. It’s like eating with no smell or flavor. It’s going through the motions without realizing the power, the love and Presence of God longing to enter in.
     The true essence of worship is non-existence in families even for those who do have a time in the Word and song. Why is that? Because of having the patience, endurance and heart to wait upon the Lord. Thus, children and even adults will not truly experience what God has longed for them: true fellowship with His children. If children do push on with their walk with the Lord they may experience this periodically at church or small prayer groups within the church means.
     This brings us to not just who, but how often as well…how often do we feel and hear and smell and yes even see the Presence of our Lord? This is vital on an individual basis as well as a couple or family.
     When we are in the presence of our Lord, the world will indeed see it: His Glory radiating upon our countenance. Yes, our countenance (our attitudes and reactions will be so different) will be changed. Moses was changed for life; he found his purpose and yes even his weakness; but with that God was revealed in His Glory in Mighty deeds. Today we can radiate the true love of Jesus to others (especially our children) in revealing His mercy, grace and power.
     Taking that time to push through into the deep, deep, Presence of our God will increase our days not decrease. We will accomplish more for Him and in so doing for others as well. We have lost the true focus God intended for us as His children as well as our families.
     What the Lord wants is our hearts, He literally wants to unite (sew) our hearts together with His. How can we, if we do not enter in and come close to Him? When we are sown together with Christ, then the essence of worship will come to a fruition and the Spirit will grow into ‘the perfect will of God,’ mirroring the character of Christ.
      “Oh, Jesus, forgive me, forgive us as a family that our needs, our flesh has ruled the time we say we spend with You. That we do not let You have complete rule and reign like we say You do. Now Lord, make that difference: we/I wait upon You. I want to be with You, I want to feel You…oh I want all of You my Lord and King!”
