As I was reading and studying come follow me this week one of the things that stood out to me most was when he was talking to the Samaritan woman at the well and told her "where we worship is not as important as how we worship". In a talk, The Blessings of Worship by Dean Davies there were a few things that I really loved and felt connected to: "Sometimes our attendance at meetings and our service in the kingdom may lack the holy element of worship. And without that, we are missing an incomparable spiritual encounter with the infinite—one we are entitled to as children of a loving Heavenly Father." "When we worship God, we approach Him with reverent love, humility, and adoration."
We respect and revere Him.We submit ourselves to Him. We lift our hearts in mighty prayer, cherish His word, rejoice in His grace, and commit to follow Him with dedicated loyalty." "Through sincere and heartfelt worship, we blossom and mature in hope, faith, and charity. And through that process, we gather heavenly light into our souls that infuses our lives with divine meaning, abiding peace, and everlasting joy." Let us follow Him and worship Him today and always. I don't want to lose sight of this as I run around getting my 4 kids and myself ready for church. I love the peace I feel when I allow the spirit to be with me and not focus on how I might have yelled at my children to hurry and get shoes, or knowing that I don't have to be perfect. I know Christ sees my intentions and he will make up the rest and continue to bless and strengthen me as I try to follow Him and worship righteously. - 1 hour ago
