“COME, Now Is The Time To Worship”

Worship. I NEED to worship, to praise, to close my eyes and allow words set to music to pour forth from my soul, right to the heart of God. I Need to sing TO God, not about him but right to him, heart to heart, without any self-consciousness, without reserve, without concern for what others will think. The music must be easy to sing, not too high or strained, not too complicated.

There was a time when my husband and I and our kids had a place, a Catholic place, where we could worship God in Spirit in truth with song. Now I must struggle to reach notes that are too high, with a choir that performs. It is agony, my spirit shrivels and wince03e17e636e4969514054a2a366519332s. No wonder some of us do not like church music.

Listen to this example of music that praises God. I really must start playing this type of worship music again because it makes me weep . I cannot read this post without tearing up  because my inner spirit is starving. Yes, I receive the Eucharist but man was created to really worship, in Spirit and in Truth.

  1. I listened and then went on other sites and cried for a couple of hours. The praise songs do that to me. I am so worried about my daughter. She is 44 and just had a double mastectomy. NOW she has to look forward to Chemo but she also has Lupus. Thanks for sharing. Hugs as you share your ministry.


  2. Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty heavens. Praise Him for His acts of power; praise Him for His surpassing greatness. Praise Him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise Him with the harp and lyre, praise Him with timbral and dancing, praise Him with the strings and pipe, praise Him with the clash of cymbals, praise Him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
    Psalm 150
