(Proverbs 13:4 KJV) The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
How does this apply in regard to worship? I have approached it this way before but it grabs me this way again because I am struggling to find a place to worship. In my heart I know that I can get something from the most boring worship service. I know that my attitude has a lot to do with it, but....
It is hard for me to get into the “song of the week” style of contemporary worship. We have “worship leaders” who think that the words they came up with this week trump Isaac Watts, Fanny J. Crosby, Graham Kendrick and so many others who are genuinely gifted in worship music. It has been a long time since I have heard a piece of music that is new to me that grips my soul and motivates my heart to sing. I don’t think the problem is in me.
So? I am grateful for my I-pod and other devices that allow me to worship at any time. Sometimes I feel really fat just driving in my car. I only wish I could have that experience in corporate worship. I will continue to try.
