worship! it is one of the ultimate gifts we can give to our creator. it's our heart's response to Him when we realize just how much we need Him and that we can't live without Him. it's the art of being broken open and repaired all at the same time. it is so simple, yet can be so complex and stirred up for a number of reasons.
God is always the same - He's constant - yet worship can always be so different and powerful depending on what's going on in our lives and how He's gently pointing us back to the truth.
this seems to be all that i've been thinking about these past few months, and i think that means it's just the start of a beautiful journey with myself and the creator of the universe.

He's awakening the hope in me
By calling forth my destiny
He's breathing life into my soul
I will thirst for Him, and Him alone
He has come like the rain
That showers on the barren plain
So my heart and tongue confess
Jesus Christ, the hope of man
My hope is in you, God
I am steadfast, I will not be moved
I'm anchored, never shaken
All my hope is in You

reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence.
So what do our lives have to do with trust, anyway? I feel that lately God's been speaking to me quite a bit about this word. Mainly because I feel as if my next few steps are cloudy and could almost go in any direction (literally). I used to wonder why God didn't line up our whole lives before us, so that we might know exactly where we should be and how we can properly move forward onto our next chapter. But if life were this way, there would be no trust involved. I am so thankful that in our weakness He is made strong. He always comes through! This is so encouraging to me, especially when I feel as though it's in my DNA to worry about a particular thing. God is asking us to put our trust in Him, and once we do that, He takes care of everything from that moment on. One of my favourite verses talks about how we may stumble, but we'll never fall, for He holds us by our hand. How reassuring it is to know and be in love with the God who created the oceans, the forests, and the mountains! We were created to worship Him, and there is no one like our God!
