How To Prepare Your Heart For Worship

Sharing is caring!

When my husband and I found out we couldn’t have kids naturally, I was so mad at God. I often broke down in tears during church and felt so embarrassed. It was so awkward! Years later, when we went through a failed adoption of three siblings ages 2, 4 and 6, grief consumed me. Anger too. 

I was beyond overwhelmed at that point. The idea of placing all my anger and my pain aside on a Sunday morning to focus on worshipping the Lord was a task that seemed insurmountable. 

I finally realized it’s ok to come to worship messy and imperfect, there’s no need to clean ourselves up. 

Somewhere along the way, I forgot the simple, yet wondrous truth that our Savior is perfect so we don’t need to be. 

When I just came as I am, tear-filled, angry and grief-stricken, I discovered that it’s practically impossible to leave worship feeling defeated if you keep your eyes fixed on Jesus!

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.”

Hebrews 12:28-29
