I was in deep thinking of something when Josh White‘s worship song played from my playlist. And I got amazed at God. I began looking at Him and not on anything else, even my emotions.
One thing I learned from small talks I had with housemates is the difference of praise and worship… and the effectivity of vertical worship. There are songs that helps you go through emotional situations. Praise songs are those we sing because of what He’s done. Worship songs are those we sing because of who He is.
There are songs that helps you look more to Him than what you are feeling. The mood sets you into an ocean of the grace of God where you are just swallowed up and there’s just nothing we can do, but to get amazed. We are crucified in Him, and in time, we will be alive in Him. To feel nothing but His love that covers us. This is the hope of eternal life. – lyrics from You Amaze Me
We read to know we are not alone says C.S Lewis. We listen to songs to know we are not alone I say.
In a talk with an ate one time, she said I must not just get ok with God, I must get right with God. To aim to be righteous.
