Music begins to play, and my spirit hears worship. I close my eyes and hum softly.

Baby Girl hears as well. She puts down her toy and crawls to where the music is coming out of the computer. Pulling up to stand, she listens.

I am suddenly aware of her presence. She has a far away look, and I know she hears the worship in the music. She doesn’t bounce to the music as she does with other music – this is different to her.

I pull her up into my lap and we sit together.

Baby Girl is ten months old and she seems aware of worship, or is it His presence that she senses?

He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him. But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts. I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly. (Psalms 22:8-10 NIV)

Perhaps worship is not something we learn to do, but something that is cast upon us at birth.

During this time of Lent, let us take time to sit quietly before the Lord Our God and allow our spirit to worship, without  structure, without doing it “correctly”.

Just worship.

Let us allow the hope that was placed in us from the womb to open like the flowers in the garden at springtime.

Lent is a time for pulling back from the things of this world so that we can reenter refreshed and renewed.

Let the hope that was place within you at your birth arise and worship Him in spirit and truth.

Allow worship to draw your spirit into His presence, to affirm to you that you are His. This is truth. This is true worship.

When no one is looking, how do you worship?

    Diane, I LOVE this! The scripture is a new one for me, or at least I don’t recall ever reading it before. It blessed my heart greatly. I LOVE to worship. After years of battling depression has been worship that has ushered me into his healing presence. It truly is my lifeline and anti-depressant. The Lord blessed me with a wonderful personal revelation and this scripture was yet once again another confirmation! Bless your baby girl with a Spirit of Worship all the days of her life!

    Love the picture of this little 10 month old baby with her baby doll. Love the image of hope placed in our womb to open like a flower does. Love to “just worship” wherever I am in my day. All so beautiful. Great post.

    I think this site has some real fantastic information for everyone. “He is able who thinks he is able.” by Buddha.
