Having a Heart of Worship.

Worship has always been an important part of my life.   Whether participating in corporate worship, leading a group, or just hanging out with God and praising him at home or in the car.    There is something about that connection with God that brings peace, empowerment, and just an indescribable bond with all that is holy.

Where I live the weather has been pretty bad and being home has made me realize just how important individual worship is to a Christian’s well being.    I have noticed over the last few years that it is becoming more of a Sunday morning at church experience rather than an everyday lifestyle of Worship.    So when the weather prevents people from holding or attending services, people who wait to only worship on Sunday mornings at church are really set up for a bad week… including everyone they are around. (lol)

One thing I heavily rely on during these weather events is online Worship services.  There are thousands of churches across the world that stream their services live or have them on an archive.  Some of my favorite churches to attend online are Charis Christian Center in Colorado Springs, CO and Lakewood Church in Houston, TX.    Due to the time differences you can practically attend both services.  Those are a couple of my favorites.    However I have a wide variety of actual song services for worship.   Some of my favorites are a little surprising even to me.   That’s the one thing about worship, it doesn’t matter what denomination or non-denomination a person claims, worship is that individual experience that comes from the heart.   That you’re in a room with hundreds of people yet for that moment it’s just you and God kind of experience.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks as I get the AccessN2grace YouTube channel up and running with more worship playlists.   These will be playlists that would mimic an actual worship service.  Some include a countdown to worship.    That way you can become familiar with artists and genres of worship available on YouTube.   Some of the videos are live recordings from Churches across the world so you can get a taste of their service and pay them a visit if you are ever in their area.

Obviously there are millions of worship videos available but I’m only going to post the ones that I got a “heart tug” over.   You may be surprised by the variety of genres and styles of worship that I’ve found.   I’m not a big one on sticking with one particular style of worship.   I have attended worship services ranging from the most talented couples like  Charlie and Jill LeBlanc and David and Lorna Creech to Worship services that only use worship videos or CDs.    I’ve attended Church services of various sizes that have had everything from choirs and song leaders to Worship leaders with a Praise team and a full band.   The one thing I have noticed is it really doesn’t matter about the size of the choir or praise team or the most expensive equipment.   You can have a huge choir filled with sour faces or one song leader who loves the Lord.    In my childhood my favorite song leader was named Doyle.  He was amazing and he loved the Lord.    I don’t even know if he had ever heard of a praise team or a worship leader, but He was a worship leader.  He had a Heart of Worship.   That’s what I’m looking for, nothing else matters for without a heart of worship the best equipment and the most talented singers with the highest education in music theory fall flat.

I’m going to add a new category called Worship  look there for posts on music videos for worship.

Have a great day…and if the weather prevents you from attending in person please attend somewhere online that has good worship and a good faith filled word to prepare you for the week.
