One Word: Worship

My Word of the Year has been “Worship,” as you may recall.  I’ve certainly been learning to worship God in any and every situation, not only at church services, and not only when things are going well.

Today’s quote says it all — these lyrics of a song by Danny Oertli, a dear Compassion friend.  He certainly learned to worship God through his tears when his first wife died of cancer.  His music has always been a huge encouragement to me.  This is truly what worship is all about — trusting God in all situations; knowing He’s still on the throne, and certain that He can be trusted fully.  This is why we worship Him.

You know when I rise

You know when I sleep

You know that I need you desperately.

I pour out my soul, O Lord,

I worship You with tears.

I am broken.

I have nothing to give.

I fall at your feet

And worship You will tears.

I worship You will tears.

–Danny Oertli
