Psalm 29:1-2 proclaims:
“Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.”
In the midst of the doing,
the doing dishes,
the doing schoolwork,
the doing laundry and bedmaking and Lego-picking-up,
the doing dinner,
the doing baths and bedtime,
and the doing more dishes,
I wear myself out.
My body is worn out, but I wear out my heart more than anything. My soul feels strained when I fail to follow His commands for me in Psalm 29:1-2. My Father in Heaven commands me to ascribe to him the strength that I can’t muster to do all the things I’m supposed to in a day.
He commands me to worship Him and not have an expectation at the end about what I’m going to get out of worship.
Today, I pray to seek gratification from worship rather than work.
