when guilt and shame are weighing down my heart, engaging in worship seems so hard. the fact that i am a sinner is so evident that i am ashamed to face anyone…especially the one who knows all of my thoughts, intentions and actions. but the truth is that i am always in desperate need of the Savior, constantly falling short.
when worship is “easy”, am i humbly coming before God with a genuine and honest view of myself?
the distance that is highlighted when i am confronted by my unworthiness reminds me of how far God is willing to go to reach me. gratefulness infiltrates the depths of my heart and i’m brought to a deeper place of worship than ever before.
