The Joy of the Lord

Simple, happy, glowing,
Glistening eyes, upward gazing, child like
Pure, content, unpretentious
Praising, exalting, worship!

I witnessed a blessing today. A young woman who stood before our congregation worshipping the Lord. By wordly means she has very little, yet when I watched her my heart exploded with the joy of the Lord. 

She chose to worship!  
She chose to give it all she had,
 even though she didn't know all of the words,
 even though she couldn't hold the notes
 even though she had difficulty keeping up with the rest of the choir,
 she worshipped!

I was humbled by her act of service, of worship, of adoration. 

Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. I Corinthians 1:27 

Father, May I learn from this precious child how to wonder in your holy name. To enjoy you and all that you have given with thanksgiving and gratefulness. I am humbled that you have chosen us to serve you.


  1. I find it absolutely beautiful when I witness someone worshiping with abandon!

  2. Worship with Abandon...that is what I was thinking as well as I read this! Beautiful.

  3. I love to see others worship.


Thank you for visiting, Praying that you are blessed today. Jann
