Simply and Honestly

red flower 073

The theme of MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) for our group this year is BEES.  Our t-shirts will say BE YOU!  Of all the people to be ourselves with, it should be those we love and trust the most.  That should and must include God.  I think I am pretty authentic most of the time, sometimes painfully so :0)  But God wants my worship to be real.  That is my goal, and with His help I will be Simply and Honestly myself!

John 4:23-24 The Message

“It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.”

Go out and Be YOU!

    I wrote a short story today you might enjoy! I’ve noticed you seem to go more for prose than the poetry I’ve been doing a lot of lately, so I thought I’d let you know. Thanks for posting! I’m not sure how I feel about the Message’s paraphrase of worshiping God in spirit and in truth. It’s a bit confusing but seems to miss the idea of worshiping God through HIS truth, the Bible, and makes worship and truth seem so very human-derived. Faith and worship are supernaturally attained.
