The woman you see in the back of this picture was made from the woman you see in the middle of this picture. Many of you may not know but I have been praise dancing since I was 6 years old. In the beginning, it was just something to do, but now it is my expression to God. Worship literally saved my life. When I had no words to say and I didn’t even know if I wanted this thing called salvation, I constantly found myself in a place of worship. I danced through the tough seasons. I danced when I was unsure who I was. I danced while my soul was bleeding and my heart was in pain. I danced. All I knew to do was worship because that was the only place I found solace.
It was worship that brought healing to my very soul. There were so many moments in my life where I told God I didn’t want to live anymore. I felt the trials of life were more than I could bear and suddenly God would come in and I would find myself back at his feet and before his face. Worship saved me. I have tried to stop dancing so many times in my life. I felt I was too old or not trained enough and every time God finds a way to pull me back in. I have come to the conclusion that Worship is not just something that I do, but it is who I am. I am a Worshipper.
I have found myself over the last year thinking I am healed enough to get up and keep going and every time I try, God pulls me back down on my face to worship Him. What I have realized is that no matter how good or bad things are my constant posture has to be on my face before God. The moment I try to get up, things become overwhelming. I need God more than ever now. Not because things are bad or life is terrible, but because I have found me now and without worship, I cannot live.
I say all of this to encourage you to stay in your posture of Worship. Sometimes God will allow things to happen just so that you can get back on your face. What I have learned is that God LONGS for communion with his sons and daughters. This right here is personal. If you haven’t been on your face before God in a while, get back there. All the answers you need are in that place with God. We are never too grown or too healed to get out of that place with God.
Let Worship not just be what you do, but be who you are! I am a Worshipper. Worship Saved ME!
