I love how your heart is responding to God...that you even are thinking about this! Your heart of worship, my friend, is ALL over everything you do...your preparations, your work, your care, your smile, and you are quite a demonstrative worshipper, I'd say. Quite. For you have allowed your worship to permeate all that you do...and most of that is done out of the spotlight behind-the-scenes as a servant. I admire your heart of worship. But keep asking questions...that is a good thing.

Love you much in Him,


Hello! I just ended my exams today!! -victory dance- I packed away my iBook just before my exams, so I wasn't able to read your entries. I just had a good time reading your entries =) Hope you and your family are doing well!



As soon as I read this post I knew I had to track this down for you:

I would love to be so overcome, out there, that I could do this.

I love it when we see what God has for us...not what we learned from our family or our church. Whether it is what we believe or how we worship, it becomes so personal. It is so amazing when we feel that intimacy with God and know that it is a gift from Him. That is something to be thankful for!!


I have thought about this very topic a lot, only my experience has been the opposite. I grew up in a very charismatic church & as an adult I have sought out the reserved and calm. I avoid the contemporary services. I find it funny that as adults we don't always stay with what was introduced to us as children. Thankfully there are choices for us to make to help us grow in our relationship with Christ!
