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.

In Spirit and In Truth-Worship

My girls and I were having devotions this morning following a time of worship and prayer. I had read to them from one of our 'sorta' devotional books; 'The One Year Christian History (from the One Year Bible) http://www.amazon.com/One-Year-Christian-History-Books/dp/0842355073. Great book, we are always inspired and even educated!
We read today about the Cane Revival here in American. It resulted in years of amazing services with people fasting, praying, being healed and of course saved. The question was asked how we would react attending a service like this: one where people were worshiping God with ALL their heart (no reservations) and running to the alters. 
Then, he presented Ps. 100. Remember this verse starts out with SHOUT to the Lord!
Then as the girls and I talked I felt a deep leading by the Lord about how we worship and why. 
When we sing lovely songs...where is our heart? Do we enjoy singing, simply because we like the song, know the words and maybe like how nicely we sound when we do sing? Are we focused on Who we are singing to, or those around us (including ourselves)?
The girls eyes started moving back and forth, I could see they were being pricked in their hearts (as well as I). "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." John 4:24  How many times do we find ourselves singing in church or even at home and we just sing to sing. Our hearts are truly empty! 
I told the girls that when we totally focus on CHRIST and worship Him-it's like a magnet...He cannot help Himself...He draws not only to you but within...it's a powerful, intimate and life changing experience!  "Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye doubleminded." James 4:8
Please be encouraged today to worship your God with all your heart at home, in the car and of course AT CHURCH. It's time isn't it...to experience more of Him as a child of God and as the Body of Christ. Where to start? At Home (with the family) and allow it just to flow on into the place of worship you attend.
