Anyone out there ever NOT felt like worshipping before?
My hand is up. Yup, even as a worship leader there are many times I do NOT feel like worshipping when I come to church and am getting ready to lead. ~gasps~ If we’re honest we’ve all been there and probly will again. So – do we take a ‘pass’ and wait till some other day when we’re more in the mood? Or what do we do? – I’ll take a couple posts here and lay out a couple suggestions that might help us some day.
SUGGESTION #1 – Count Your Blessings (name them one by one)
Being thankful and giving thanks is entry-level worship. When we’re not really feeling into worship this’ll help get the juices flowing a bit. We enter His gates with thanksgiving. (Ps 100:4) This gets us on the premises. Think about all that you have. I mean that you have. If you’re reading a blog on a computer you’re probably rich like me. Meaning you most likely ate more than one meal in the last 24 hours, you might have a roof over your head and even a car. If you have those things you are among the wealthiest on the planet. We forget how good we have it.
Counting your blessings fights against a “woe is me” attitude and fosters thankfulness.
We are blessed – and we have Him to thank. Think about all that He has done for you; brought you to; and from. When we take a second and remember our chains (without dwelling there) we become like the person who Jesus said He who has been forgiven much loves much. Remember His mercy to you. Where would you be without Him? It’s His kindness that leads us to repentance. We love Him because He loved us first. (Lk 7:47) (Rom 2:4) (Rom 5:8)
Wow, isn’t He good? I feel a bit like worshipping myself now!
