How do you worship?

I’m not talking about the “everybody sing along now” type of Sunday morning worship. Or the service type of worship – like volunteering at your church or a local charity. Those are both great, but they’re not what I mean.

What I’m talking about is that thing you do that makes you feel closest to God, that lets you forget all the randomness in this world and takes you to the place where it’s just you and your heavenly Father – nothing else matters.

For me, it’s a three-way tie between writing poetry, dancing, and music (listening or singing/playing). My words or my music or my dancing become an offering to the One who holds my life in His hands.

But everyone’s got a unique style.

Some people worship by painting. With each brush stoke, they compose a melody to the Great Artist.

Others worship by making things, like cards and crafts. Their hands offer gifts of beauty to the Creator of beauty.

Still others worship by cleaning (I know, I don’t get it either!) They scrub and sweep, each movement reminding them of how their Savior has washed away their sins. And they look at the end product and say “God is good.” (Personally, I would look at a clean room and say, “What in the world happened here??”)

Styles of worship differ by person. Our souls respond to different forms of art.

So what is it that whisks you away, that brings you to that place where you are no longer a student, a sibling, an employee, but simply a child of God?

It’s a beautiful place to be.

“Give the Lord the glory due His name; worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness.” ~ Psalm 29:2 (HCSB)
