Presence – From the Willow Arts Conference

Hey All…Day two here at Willow started out with a bang. Had an early session with Greg and Corrine Ferguson followed by a showcase session with The Journey Church from NY City. Got a ton out of both meetings, but the best so far has to be my last session with Rory Noland about preparing spiritually to lead worship.

You’ve heard me say this before, but here it is again…We are all worship leaders! Therefore the burden upon each of us is to live a life that reflects such a calling. I could go on for hours unpacking things from this session, but the one point I want to hit on really makes the thought of a worshipping life a little easier to grasp.

Jeremiah 23:23-24 says; “Am I only a God nearby, declares the LORD, and not a God far away? Can anyone hide in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? declares the LORD.”

We have the opportunity, privilege and great joy of worshipping God with our lives, because we are always in His presence…Did you catch that? We are ALWAYS in His presence! As worshippers, we must make the conscious effort to acknowledge God every moment of every day. Praise Him for the air you breathe, the scenery out your window, your family, your friends, your gifts, His blessings, His grace, His mercy, His compassion…do I need to continue?

Whatever it is, find a reason to worship God and never stop! You are already in His presence…and He has always been worthy.

More later…
