“The more you worship, the less you worry.” –Rick Warren
Throughout the most agonizing seasons of King David’s life—running from his enemies, fighting sin, and losing his loved ones—he worshipped God in spite of his pain. David played the harp, danced, and sung. He was the Bon Jovi of his time! I’ve learned throughout my short 25 years that in the midst of painful seasons I also have to worship God, but in my own way. I write! And I will write with all of my heart. Maybe you are a teacher, physician, athlete, or technician. Whatever it is you do, worship God through it, and especially when you might be hurting. Just like God brought David through his pain He will do the same for you.
Give to the LORD the glory he deserves! Bring your offering and come into his presence. Worship the LORD in all his holy splendor (1 Chronicles 16:29, NLT).
