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 winces. 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.
