Saying Thank You

Thank the Lord because he is good.
His love continues forever.
Psalm 106:1



                     Worship is simply saying "Thank You" to God.
                     Worship is the "Thank You" which refuses to be silenced.
                     Worship is when we are aware that what we have been given
                                is far greater than what we can give.
                     Worship is the awareness that were it not for His touch,
                                we would still be hobbling and hurting, bitter and broken.
                     Worship is a voluntary act of gratitude offered to God for all He has done.
                     Worship, in the catacombs or on conference calls,
                                in a magnificent cathedral or a humble wooden chapel,
                                in a large crowd or all alone, connects us to God.
                     Worship is listening for God.
                     We can talk to God because God listens.
                     Our prayers may be awkward, our attempts may be feeble,
                                but our prayers do make a difference.
                     Worship makes a difference in our lives.
                     Worship connects us to God's joy, peace, and patience
                     We enjoy gathering together, greeting each other,
                                and we enjoy being in God's presence together.
                     Alone or together, on Sundays, or any day of the week,
                                we are in God's heart
                                because He loves each one of us,
                                all the time, no matter what.
                     Times have been tough for each of us, but as we come close to God,
                                thank Him for all He has given us and done for us,
                                we can abide in His presence and love.
                     That is how we get through the tough times.
