psalm 51

IMG_9399

Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare praise.
You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;
you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart
you, God, will not despise.
Psalm 51:15-17

I’m taking a break. Somewhere in the past few months, things became about producing and not worshiping.

So take a break, too. Maybe cut yourself some slack. Stop focusing on all the things you should be doing right and stop focusing on the things that maybe you don’t have the capacity to accomplish this day or any day, for that matter.  True worship leads to freedom, to love, and to joy. And freedom, love, and joy lead to worship. Sit in those moments and remember everything about how it feels to be loved exactly as you are–seen as whole and unbroken despite yourself.
