As a child I always loved worship. It is so difficult to put it in words on how worship makes me feel… Like it is Finished! john 19:30 and that is one place I wish I would abide in forever . I have this random memory that I cannot forget.My Dad was playing his favourite music (gospel of course, Rebecca Malope to be more precise that ended up rubbing on me as young as I was).
Okay…. so this was my thinking … Dad is with his friend driving and chatting so I figured I might have as well been alone in the backseat so I felt free to do whatever I wanted to do . As the songs played there was one of my favorites that went on and I sang like I was alone in the car , like no one was there..little did i foresee what I would see a couple of minutes later.
Maaaan I love God ! NOW.. as I was filled and absorbed by the worship I cant seem to remember what led my Dad to stop the car..Because my next memory as I opened my eyes Dads car had stopped , my hands were in the air and Dad and his friends eyes were popping out. So there I was ,little 8 old me thinking “ whats wrong?” but my dad said it first” Tshidi… are u ok?” and guess what I said ” Dad why did you stop the car and why did you stop the music?”
I still don’t remember what was taking place with me that my Dad had to stop the car…. as young as I was I think I was speaking in tongues hahahaha. I really do. Man I think i freaked him OUT!
I cannot begin to explain the peace that comes with worship… the joy. You cannot get that from anywhere else. Like a mighty storm, stir within my soul. Lord have your way in me. You are worthy my God!
Your love my God, surrounds me.
As I lay myself at your feet.
Theres no other place that I would rather be .
Than in your Holy presence ,
Oh how I have never seen such love ,
That you would find me worthy ,
And die for me ,I love you my God,
Teach me how to love you and glorify you
I pray my Jesus,
That my life will glorify you
I pray My God
that with my last breath,Your name will be glorified and like Paul i can say
“ i have fought the good fight of faith, I have finished the race and I have kept the faith.”
