I think one of my most important endeavors is to make our house a house of worship. Tonight the TV went off and the worship came on... and the atmosphere changed. It's hard to explain if you have never experience it, but there is something deep inside that shifts when we acknowledge that our Creator is present and give Him the honor and glory He is worthy of.
Needless to say, our house can be very chaotic at times..... well almost all the time, if I am being completely honest. I have found myself just stopping mid-laundry to just raise my hands in surrender to the Lord and block everything out. At first my kids would ask what I was doing... now they just join in. It's my way of declaring that God is always our priority, no matter the emotional climate of our household.
Why am I sharing this?
I'm not quite sure.
Tonight I just was so grateful for the reminders God is constantly sending my way, that He is present.... that He is available... that He is here. So Chris and I blasted my worship concoction on You Tube tonight and allowed our minds and hearts to focus on Him.
"You are holy, You who inhabit the praises of Your people."
