The below song has dramatically impacted how I now approach God in worship. I begin by worshiping and praising Him for who He is, and welcome Him to move in my life in however it pleases Him. I receive His love again for me, and after I am made right again in His Presence (gotta keep changing that sin list in for the forgiven list every day) then and only then to I bring Him my needs.
May God meet you in those precious moments you spend worshiping Him too friend.
And let me reassure you, I do this in the bathroom shower, taking the bus to work or driving around town on errands, and/or in the quiet moments in my home before I head for bed. Just like you, I am learning to integrate worship throughout my days, so I keep Him first and foremost on my mind, and turn to Him first in my times of need, big or small.
“Before I bring my need, I will bring my heart. Before I lift my cares, I will lift my arms. I wanna know You, I wanna find You, in every season, in every moment – before I bring my need, I will bring my heart and seek You…
First, I wanna seek You, I wanna seek You First. I wanna keep You, I wanna keep You First. More than anything I want, I want You First.
Before I speak a word, let me hear Your voice. And in the midst of pain, let me feel Your joy. I wanna know You, I wanna find You, in every season, in every moment. Before I speak a word, I will bring my heart and seek You First…
…You are my treasure and my reward, let nothing ever come before, I seek You First.”
“First” by Lauren Daigle
