but, what else?

One definition is missing: life.
Every aspect of our lives is designed to be worship to our Creator. If we “feel an adoring reverence or regard,” then everything we do is an act of worship. Worship stems from our very souls – deep in our guts and beings. We were designed that way. We are intended to live in reverence and regard.

Knowing that, I’m going to spend the next 31 days linked with Write 31 Days  discussing worship. I invite you to follow not just me, but all participants buy using  #write31days on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We’re all on Pinterest, too. Personally, I’ll be using the additional hashtag: #31daysworship.

I’m not spending 31 days writing definitions. Instead, I’m sharing with you methods, ideas, prayers… opportunities.

My goal with this series is to help open your eyes and mine to a life of worship. A life of gratitude. A chance to stop in the busy-ness of life and offer praise. Let’s lament together, too. Because, our God is big enough to handle it.

In short, let’s begin opening our eyes to more ways and opportunities and resources for worship.
