About to Get My Worship on

Worship

I woke up the other morning hearing a song on the radio that caught my attention. It’s called “Beautiful Day” by Jamie Grace. As a musician, I appreciate how the song’s rhythm, melody, harmony and lyrics, as well as Grace’s stylings work together to create a “sunburst” effect in the soul. As a “positivist,” I love how this song brings me into a great attitude when I listen to it in the morning.

But it’s as a Whole Life Worshiper that really makes me appreciate this song.

There’s a phrase in the song that goes: “About to get my worship on.”

If there is a phrase that describes the motion of Whole Life Worship, it’s that! Worship is not something we go to, it’s something we decide to do. Worship is not only a Sunday morning event, it’s a choice we have to make every day. Worship are not just songs we sing, it is an entire way of life that we pattern ourselves around. It is a mindset, an attitude: it’s “about getting our worship on.”

What I also like about Grace’s song is that worship is about meeting and walking with Jesus. She can’t wait for her Personal Worship Time with Jesus:

This child awaits, strong in the faith

Lord, You are the refuge that I can’t wait to get to

Cause I can’t let a day go

Can’t let a day go by

Without thanking you for the joy that you bring to my life

And there’s something ’bout the way

Your sun shines on my face

It’s a love so true, I could never get enough of You

And she points out that worship is not just about giving God our Sunday best, but our whole lives – warts and all – to Him as a living sacrifice and allowing Him to transform us:

When trouble seems to rain on my dreams

It’s not a big, not a big deal

Let it wash all the bugs off my windshield

Cause You’re showing me in You I’m free

And You’re still the refuge

That I’ve just got to get to

So put the drop top down, turn it up,

I’m ready to fly.

For me, this song is a “perfect trifecta” – great music, positive outlook and a powerful reminder to live out Whole Life Worship to our awesome, wonderful, loving Lord.

It is a beautiful morning, isn’t it? I’m about to get my worship on!

What song lifts your spirits and encourages you to live for Christ?

What helps you expand your concept of worship beyond “event and song” to “decision and lifestyle”?
