Ladies, I know that it’s just Friday but I want you to keep this truth in mind…
…for Sunday Worship, this entire weekend, and for your entire life…
You don’t have to impress anyone…just show up to worship the King.
Mommas, wives, ladies … Sunday morning worship is not a competition.
Life is not a competition.
More than likely, “Miss Has It All Together” battled with screaming kids over brushing teeth and clean clothes just like you did. Very possibly, “Miss Perfect Family” cried herself to sleep last night because she fears her husband has been unfaithful. And maybe, just maybe, “Miss Spiritual Suzy” is crumbling on the inside looking for a warm smile, a heartfelt hug, or a simple touch…
A few days ago as I was leaving for work, I kissed my husband goodbye. He said, “Ooh, are you wearing perfume today?” And I said… “Nope! That’s dry shampoo sweetie!” 😂 I may have been looking all pretty 😉 and smelling all sweet at first glance but behind the front? I woke up late, didn’t get my hair washed and had to settle for dry shampoo!
So ladies, let’s not assume just because someone looks the part that they have it all together.
Let’s enter into His presence tomorrow … and Sunday … and everyday… with a Heart of Worship.
I can promise that when you do, all that other stuff won’t seem as important.
“Sing to the Lord, all the earth;
proclaim his salvation day after day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous deeds among all peoples.
For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
he is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the nations are idols,
but the Lord made the heavens.
Splendor and majesty are before him;
strength and joy are in his dwelling place.
Ascribe to the Lord, all you families of nations,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
bring an offering and come before him.
Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.
Tremble before him, all the earth!
The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved.
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”
