See the Awesomeness of Your God...

It's been awhile...My bad...
Once again...God just blows my mind to pieces...Honestly, there is nothing left...Anways...I was reading the tail end of Buck-Naked Faith by Eric Sandras and he has this section about seeing God through every distraction put in front of you...he focused a lot on worship, which tends to shoot right up my alley...I've been thinking a lot about this too, and what it means to me...Basically...worship is more than just a 30 minute session at church with music and singing...Worship moves beyond our feeble, mortal selves and into a whole different realm where we meet with God and become in Him and He enters into us...God's presence should be so close to our freaking faces that when we leave our time of worship, however long that may be, we can't help but see Him everywhere...Worship and The Word must become more than just events on a Sunday morning...They need to turn into an attitude that so magnifies God that we can't help but see Jesus in EVERYTHING...
A few places in the Bible I love to read about worship....Check out Isaiah 6...It talks about the angels Isaiah sees and hears worshipping God...He hears a noise that would pretty much blow away any surround sound system you can find at Best Buy or Circuit City...Verse 4: "At the sound of their voices the doorposts and threshholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke." This wasn't a movie...Isaiah got to experience the real deal...Worship to the max...Shoot, his eardrums echoed...He felt sensations he never had before...Another place...Check out Psalms 139...Not kidding, this blows me away everytime...Too much to even put in here, so look it up... :) David just goes on about the awesomeness of God and how He knows every crevice, every fiber in out body...Even when we sin...He still wants us...Holy mother...
Even something as "little" as a sunset makes me want to stare forever at this creation...I just don't get how something so beautiful was conceived and made so that we may worship in different forms...
Please God, never let me water you down and forget how big you are...I know You don't need us, but you want us...Sin and all...Thanks for putting up with me and being with me no matter what I do...I am sinner reaching out my hand, and You take it everytime.............

I want God to blow my mind away so that all that is left is my heart...He tries...I just don't listen and see...

Good point. The neat definitions we put on worship, or devotions, or what not, are silly.

Maybe I'll see you in person on Sunday at church, imagine that! :)

wooo. I know exactly what you mean. Some of my favorite things to do I do just so I can admire creation...walking through the woods, looking at the stars, traveling to the middle of nowhere to camp in a tent...yeah. I love it. Keep up the great writing Jacob...I love reading these. :D
