“We are perishing for lack of wonder, not for lack of wonders.”
“Just as your body needs sleep, your soul needs time to rest in God.” — Craig Groeschel
“I need to worship because without it I lose a sense of wonder and gratitude and plod through life with blinders on.”—John Ortberg
“Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth. Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing. Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations.” – Psalm 100
“Worship is not a repetitious exercise of rituals and formulas. These create a veil that actually prevents us from enjoying the presence of the Lord. Worship is the heart poured out in gratitude and awe, expressing our appreciation of who He is and what He has done for us by His grace through Jesus Christ.” – Dave Hunt
“Your most profound and intimate experiences of worship will likely be in your darkest days – when your heart is broken, when you feel abandoned, when you’re out of options, when the pain is great – and you turn to God alone.” – Rick Warren
“Where God is at the center of things, worship inevitably follows. Where there is no spirit of worship, there God has been dethroned and displaced.” – Sinclair B. Ferguson
1 Praise the LORD, O my soul; and all that is within me, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits—
What can I build into my schedule and my environment so that I worship God every day ?
