I’m writing this as I am stuck on the side of the road with a completely flat tire waiting for help to come. On my left I have a group of kids staring at me & talking back & forth in a language I can’t understand... most likely about how silly I must look. & on my right there are a group of pigs eating grass that I am staring at & singing worship songs to because that seems like the best thing to do in this moment.
The crazy thing is that my heart’s anthem lately has been, “Lord, what does it look like to live in a constant state of worship?”
What does that look like on a daily basis & how can we pursue that when the going gets tough? Little did I know that a few days later I would be stuck on the side of the road in Uganda, in a town I don’t know, in what I believe to be God’s great humor as if to say, “here is a great chance to practice.”
God totally has a sense of humor.
You see, I think living in a state of constant worship has the power to completely change the trajectory of our lives. Being in a constant state of worship takes our eyes and hearts off the fleeting patterns of this world & sets them to focus on the consistency of the eternal.
I don’t know much, but I think God delights in our efforts of living in a constant state of worship & our small moments of offering...even if that means singing worship songs to a group of pigs. 🐷🐽 #ohuganda
