WORSHIP music

Some people need quiet to write. I need worship music. For some reason in helps me to remember WHO is in control and WHO is there to help. Here is a great quote by Calvin Miller about worship. It puts it all in perspective.



“My gift to you is love, but

Worship is your gift to Me.

And Oh, most glorious it is!

Worship always calls Me ‘Father’ and

Makes us both rich with common joy.

Worship Me, for only this great gift

Can set you free from the killing love of self,

And prick your fear with valiant courage

To fly in hope through moments of despair.

Worship will remind you

That no man knows completeness in himself.

Worship will teach you to speak your name,

When you’ve forgotten who you are.

Worship is duty and privilege,

Debt and grand inheritance at once.

Worship, therefore at those midnights

When the stars hide.

Worship in the storms till love

Makes thunder whimper and grow quiet

And listen to your whispered hymns.

Worship and be free.”

-- Calvin Miller, A Requiem For Love pg. 18

Worship music gets me in the spirit for everything. To write, clean, fold laundry, play with my kids. It's truth set to music! I love your blog. Is it considered tacky of me to ask you for advice?
