ok so this picture is of my boy the other day sleeping, i wish he was sleeping that well right now, he is screaming at the top of his lungs. when he is out, he is OUT. i mean nothing wakes him. I wish i could sleep like that. i really wish i could go to sleep fast for once and not think about 1 million things. anyway new subject: here are some thoughts on worship,
well these are somethings that have been on my mind lately: thinking about our outward expressions...how do we judge/create the ways that we show our affections? is it judged by scripture? should it be? i mean david danced with out all of his clothes..i mean not that i dont think that could be fun but would that be worship for me? if you don;t know the answer is no. i do think scripture tells us how to worship but i also think scripture tells the story of many different people. (please don'tleave me the comment about worship being our lives, i know that, I am not talking about that i am specifically talking about our response to musical worship. ) i got the new hillsongs album about 3 weeks ago (matt i saw you got that album) i like the cd and i loved the DVD from the last cd but this one i struggled with while i watched. at one point these students have a mosh pit. could that be an act of worship? i am not so sure. i feel like our worship is our response to the greatness of God. i am not sure how a mosh pit brings Glory and attention t o Jesus. I am not saying mosh pits are wrong in general but i do not feel like they have a place in worship. i love the heart behind worship music but as many folks say that slam "contemporary" worship i feel like so often it can be totally me focused. i think there is a need for some of that but not all of that. as i am working on writing songs i am really trying to make sure that everything i write points to Jesus and how fortunate i am that he extends His grace to me.
as i started this blog saying Levi was crying, he has just gone down to sleep which means this blog was paused about 10 times and took 2 hours to write. sorry this is really choppy and may not make much sense nor is it even a complete thought.
