In the quiet of this moment as I steal away to be with You, I take my eyes off of all going on around me and focus solely on You.
First, I lift my song of worship to You for who You are. Because of who You are, and how much You deserve to be worshiped, Mighty and Holy One, Lord Most High.
Then, I lift my arms in praise, thanking You for all You have already done, all You are doing, and all You have yet to do for myself and those I love. You are so good to those You love, and I can’t stop thanking and praising You for Your love and goodness.
Next, I bow my knee in obedience, and confess my wrong doings to You, inviting Your cleansing and healing as You wash me clean again.
Then, and only then, do I bring You the weight of what is on my heart, my needs and my requests.
Because what matters most to me, first and foremost, is making sure You and I are tight, God. Because pleasing You is my first priority. Even when all else seems unsettled and uncertain, I want to keep You first in my heart, first in my mind, first in my sight.
